Creating a new radar

Create a YAML file under content/radars, the file name must be formatted YYYY-MM-${radarName}.yml, YYYY-MM should be set to the radar's publish year/month and radarName should only contain lower case characters and dashes. Copy the content of the template radar content/radars/1999-01-radar-template.yml into the new radar and modify as needed. Once the radar is ready to be published remove draft: true.
