We should add reference detection (links to other posts) and mention detection (links to user identities) to the Discourse plugin. Both references and mentions will correspond to new edge types.
First off, it will significantly increase the quality of cred attribution in the Discourse plugin, since references and mentions are both high-signal. Also, it will unblock a number of important/interesting initiatives, like the initiatives plugin and cred weighted prioritizaiton.
- Modify the Discourse fetcher+mirror interface to provide full post text
- Implement a (html?) parser that detects references and mentions
- Update discourse declaration so it has new edge types
createGraphso that it creates the new edge types
