I'd like /usr/share/mc/syntax/ would have README file.
I think this README must contain:

  • syntax file format description
    • something, like BNF would be great (at least i will know where i can use regular expression and where i can't :])
    • explain every keyword a little
  • complete regular expressions format (and/or link to it's description if it's not special)
    • notes on performance of constructs (maybe, list and describe some common inefficient regexp patterns)

  • Priority changed from major to minor
  • Keywords syntax, doc, feature removed
  • Milestone changed from 4.6.2 to 4.7

As this is an enhancement and now bugfix I put it into the 4.7 release.. as the 4.6.x series should only contain bugfixes.

Furthermore I removed the keywords as we use the keywords field for setting vote-<name> approved etc. tags
