With a capital R?  README or readme.txt would be more common spellings 
under Unix/Linux.

The other problem with a single readme file is that it can't be 
contributed by more than one person, so if a new RPM comes along, the 
person with the master readme has to edit and upload it.  If the readme 
was per RPM or set of RPMs then that would not be a problem.  You could 
also include info like who built the RPM and how to contact them etc.

etc. could be one way of doing this (in a docs directory?)
