Excellent question and suggestion, Hany. I can't say with authority
whether or not the READMEs were ever actually copied over to SlackDocs.
I'm leaning toward not, though. I don't remember ever seeing them
anywhere there.

I don't think there would be an copyright issues with the READMEs, so
transcribing them to the wiki might not be a bad idea. Possibly, Eric
Hameleers could create a directory just for the READMEs similar to the
way we did for the HowTos.

Thanks for writing to the list with this idea. I'm sure Eric H., Niki
K., and others will be here in a bit to comment further.
