746 - option to auto-generate readme.txt from description

The ability to set a flag in .pkgmeta and have the packager automatically include a Readme.txt consisting of the project description (preferably with links expanded to a parenthetical format with the URL) would be handy.

    You can do this right now actually with the .docmeta

    The license thing would be interesting however, another ticket (I'll create it).

    +3 and please have the capability of also including:

    COPYRIGHT LICENSE

    UPLOADED FILE DESCRIPTION

    UPLOADED FILE KNOWN CAVEATS

    I am already salivating at the convenience!

    Since these can be changed at will, you may need to
    repackage the zip each change; or, alternatively, if
    you don't want to change the initial zip, the readme
    on creation should warn that the latest data is always
    on the website.
