Interesting issues on Github
- Title: [RFC] Add a complete set of GraphQL Document examples for stress testing parsers
- Description: The GraphQL query language is well specified with a formal grammar but is large enough that there can be subtle edge cases when constructing parsers, especially when the parser is hand written.
