npm not seeing README.md, even though it's in the directory and not excluded #4585

I have an NPM package (gulp-cdnizer) that I'm working on. If I don't manually include the readme property in my package.json, then I get "ERROR: No README data found!" for the readme data.

I'm not doing anything funny with the .npmignore, and I don't actually understand how this is supposed to work. I've manually updated the readme on the previous packages I've published, but in researching this, I realized I shouldn't have to do this.

Any idea how to fix it?

Note, I re-reported this on as npm/read-package-json#31, because I think the issue might be within that. I don't know if this should be closed yet, or not.

I'm having this issue in v 3.4.1 with a private package that I am writing.
