We often add some Readme files in library where a big number of people can write, to define some rules (like : only put here document that you own the copyright, or tips about the document tree, e-mail of the people who manage the library, etc). I’ve seen that adding a readme.md file add a frame at the top of the file list, witch is great, but doesn’t seem to be usable enough for us.
Some possible improvements:
- internationalize the file name, because readme.md is not clear for people who doesn’t speak english
- why not display the content instead of a link to the filename? It’s remove a step to access to it’s content (like github readme.md)
- at the first snyc with a client, a message could suggest the user to go read the Readme (if one at the root of a library)
- and in seahub, a button “Add a readme” at the root of the library could help people to discover the feature (and can create the file with the right internationalized filename)
What do you think about that?
Thanks for this great software,
