New Project Template

This repository contains a template you can use to seed a repository for a new open source project.

See go/releasing (available externally at https://opensource.google.com/docs/releasing/) for more information about releasing a new Google open source project.

This template uses the Apache license, as is Google's default. See the documentation for instructions on using alternate license.

    • There is no reason to fork it.
