While playing around with packaging using Distutils2-py3, I created a package called PyIdGen https://pypi.python.org/pypi/PyIdGen and added README.txt file.
I have seen that some packages have their documentation embedded into the packages' corresponding package pages @ pypi.python.org. For example, the 'py-postgresql 1.1.0' module @ 'https://pypi.python.org/pypi/py-postgresql/1.1.0' has its documentation on its package page.
A few questions: 1. What format should I use in my README.txt file for my package's content to be displayed on its package page? 2. Do I have to use a different extension for the README?
