Github has ruined the concept of a README bah!

I find a project, I try to figure out build steps. I decide I want guidance. I look. Excitedly I type "cat README" and I get a marketing pitch formatted to be viewed as HTML.

@silverwizard if the readme is a markdown file, it's a red flag.

@JB Carroll @silverwizard Almost every github project has a README.md file, NOT a red flag, usually they contain useful information.

Yeah, but they aren't usually a README, they're usually a short website about the project, should probably be an index.html

@silverwizard @JB Carroll This may be true of Windows projects but certainly not of Linux, it is almost ALWAYS a README.md and sometimes there will be also a BUILD.md and an INSTALL.md but always a README.md and NEVER an INDEX.md.

Sorry, I said the contents of README.md *belong* in index.html and are always in README.md which is no longer a useful file

@Nanook I was being facetious, but only by a little bit. 😀
