The README file in the release directory for the Guidelines is out of date ([http://sourceforge.net/projects/epidoc/files/Guidelines/]). It currently points to version 8.16 (we're on 8.19 now) and also contains release-specific informaton and a list of authors of the guidelines that is seriously incomplete.

I think we should change the readme to be generic enough that it applies to any release (is the readme in SVN not enough?), but if we want release-specific information in there, we should have a pathway to creating it, and document it on the [ReleaseProc] page.

    EDAG agrees (on 8/28/14) that the README should become a fairly simple table of contents that outlines the structure of the release directory and points to relevant items, such as the release notes.

    rewrite to be more generic, add links to the necessary documents like release notes etc.
    Explain how to read release notes.
    Explain that this download is not definitive, so not complete with respect to documentation.
