My recent change set 7753:c28c5f906c6b added the ability to view a tool shed
repository's README file from the pop-up menu on pages in the tool shed repository as
well as in the Galaxy Admin UUI for installed repositories. Since many of these README
files are rather large, I needed to display them on a separate page, hence the need for
the new Repository Actions popup menu "View README" item.

Ah. I see now it just isn't doing what I expected - apologies for
I had assumed if a README file was present, it would be shown
prominent while browsing on the ToolShed. On closer examination
of an example repository where there is a file named exactly
'README' (e.g. fubar's clustalw tool) that isn't shown either.
Is there any reason not to show the contents of the README file
(using the discussed name variations) on the main ToolShed
repository view, e.g. under a new yellow section header?
