GitHub README Hierarchy

As GitHub won’t render a document heading (h1) placed at top of a asciidoc readme file, the subheading (h2) above will do. Btw, the current GitHub readme hierarchy is:

  1. asciidoc

  2. creole

  3. md|mkdn?|mdwn|mdown|markdown

  4. mediawiki|wiki

  5. org

  6. pod

  7. rdoc

  8. re?st(\.txt)?

  9. textile

  10. txt

  11. no extension
