Package: debhelper
Version: 10
Severity: wishlist

Dear maintainers,

Lots of upstreams include a readme called '', 'README.rst',
'README.markdown' etc., rather than just 'README'.  It would be nice if
dh_installdocs would install these automatically, as it currently
installs plain 'README'.

Markdown and reStructuredText are designed to be readable without
knowledge of the markup language, so these files are equally suitable
for installation to /usr/share/doc/*/.
