It's not the README file; it's the package's "long_description" keyword, as specified in your setup.py setup() call. And the format is reStructuredText
It doesn't matter, since the README is not read by PyPI. (You can put code in your setup.py to read the file into the long_description field, though. Take a look at other packages' setup.py files to see how they do it.)

Oops, I missed this, in some cases PyPI will read a README.rst (maybe a .txt too), typically if a long_description is not available.
