Creating new repositories

Start each repository with a README template like the one below:

# [Project name]

Summary of what this project is, and why it's needed.

## Maintainers

[main maintainer] (primary) and [secondary maintainer] (secondary)

## Design principles

Write here the main design decisions behind this project, so that a
person wanting to get familiar with this code will understand the
principles.

## Developer guidelines

Write here what to consider and take into account before merging
changes into this repo, or tips while developing.

## Development

If relevant, explain here how to get a development version of the
project up and running. Also add information on how to run tests,
coverage checkers, linters, etc.

## Tests before merging changes

Write here the manual or semi-automated tests that should be performed
before merging any changes to this repo, along with instructions to
easily reproduce the results.

The containers repository is a good example of how to complete the README template.
