postmodern, prior to me abandoning the use of that generator, i always used to rip out that generated readme. nobody needs it there. and no, GitHub Markdown is most definitely not the weird one of the two.
i used to put a redirect to the main module's page. and yes it's an unwinnable battle, but also a pointless battle

<postmodern> oprypin, the README is important as it's the first thing people see. it's the landing page. GitHub just needs to fix their unpredictable markdown generator...
