Couple days ago I wanted to update gevent-fastcgi package description on PyPI since it was out of date. I put test in reStructuredText format into description field and submitted the change.

Description was updated but no formatting was done. All RST markup was ignored and whatever text was submitted was shown as plain text.

    Please run the description through a command-line tool to see if there are any errors. If there are not then check for custom directives or use of raw HTML directives.

    Thank you for solving that problem for me.

    It would be great if parsing error was shown though. It was really confusing and I had no clue what was going on.
