Great! Thanks for doing this, it is a huge step forward to have even
this level of visibility to our notebook examples. This makes me
think that transitioning to notebook based narrative docs might not be
* Start to put narrative notebook docs in a directory hierarchy.
* For each dir in the heirarchy, auto-generate a README.md file in the
same way you have done here.
It is not perfect, but I think it is good enough to get us going in
the right direction.
Question: should our narrative docs be in a separate repo moving forward?
