Issue #5104 wontfix

allow disabling README feature in repository admin

Arend van Spriel
created an issue

I have created a linux kernel repository and on the Overview page the README of the linux kernel is shown, which is not very useful. Please consider adding a checkbox in repository admin page so this feature can be enabled/disabled.

    If you don't wish to show a README, you may consider removing it from the root directory of your project. This will achieve the same effect. We don't plan on changing this behavior at this time.

    (Reply via asp...@gmail.com):

    The thing is that the README in my repository is from a Linux kernel tree that I am working on so it does not reflect any specific information related to my project. I could add a README.txt as it takes precedence, but it would be nicer if the README processing could be selectively disabled. Is bitbucket itself opensource? I am willing to dive in and contribute.
