The most prominent issue is that it still describes the minimakefile
build process as if it was current. That is not the currently
maintained build process, and it's not what you get if you simply use
"make" in the asdf source directory. So if you follow the directions
given in the README.md they don't work.
Better that there be no information than wrong information.
I simply do not have time to fix the README.md
Indeed, I'm not willing to take on the index.html, the manual, the
Changelog, and now yet another file of documentation.
At some point we may be able to bring the README.md back, but I don't
have the resources for it now. So it has to go.
