Thank you for the tip. I need to create something like a light-weight statistical paper for my vetting department and I am already deep enough in using rmarkdown. The gfm is a very minor thing, but I was puzzled that following the tutorial did not work and decided to ask the question. The author is responding.

 Hello Stephen,

I'm not sure if I'll be of any help, and forgive me if I failed to
understand the context in which you want to use polymode. Have you
considered org-mode as an alternative to poly-mode?

Org-mode is very easy to setup and your documents can easily be exported to
github flavored mark-down should you need to do that.

Greg Minshall [0] has a good introduction to ESS and Org-mode.
The github flavoured md is called ox-gfm and is available on
melpa. Although it might seem old, it is still fully functional.

Hope this helps,
