Tools for README.md Creation and Maintenance

Episode #395, published Thu, Dec 22, 2022, recorded Mon, Dec 5, 2022

If you maintain projects on places like GitHub, you know that having a classy readme is important and that maintaining a change log can be helpful for you and consumers of the project. It can also be a pain. That's why I'm excited to welcome back Ned Batchelder to the show. He has a lot of tools to help here as well as some opinions we're looking forward to hearing. We cover his tools and a bunch of others he and I found along the way.
