i renamed the README and fixed some indentions. Useful, because github understands markdown and it was nearly the same like markdown.
The changes are readable as like before.
README.txt -> README.md + clean up
If you don't to use markdown, you can also provide both files. So github will provide a nice view and you can use your plaintext-file.
I only need some minutes to convert this file.
I'm sorry but this README is only meant as a placeholder and a pointer to the real docs, which are in the gitolite-doc repo (separated from 'gitolite' shortly after I changed the doc license to CC-BY-NC-SA because distros can'twon't shipping NC docs).
I probably put in too much information in it, and that is causing confusion. I'll reduce it.
As for markdown, I don't mind doing that after I reduce it enough that no one will think "this is all the documentation there is" :-)
No sorry; that will be plain text. Feel free to discuss on the mailing list.
Meta note: I don't accept pull requests normally, in fact I don't even log on to github most of the time. The gitolite mailing list is the correct place to communicate with me.
