Describe the intended usage of this charm and anything unique about how
this charm relates to others here.
This README will be displayed in the Charm Store, it should be either Markdown or RST. Ideal READMEs include instructions on how to use the charm, expected usage, and charm features that your audience might be interested in. For an example of a well written README check out Hadoop: http://jujucharms.com/charms/precise/hadoop
Here's an example you might wish to template off of:
This charm provides (service) from (service homepage). Add a description here of what the service itself actually does.
Step by step instructions on using the charm:
juju deploy servicename
and so on. If you're providing a web service or something that the end user needs to go to, tell them here, especially if you're deploying a service that might listen to a non-default port.
You can then browse to http://ip-address to configure the service.
The configuration options will be listed on the charm store, however If you're making assumptions or opinionated decisions in the charm (like setting a default administrator password), you should detail that here so the user knows how to change it immediately, etc.
Though this will be listed in the charm store itself don't assume a user will know that, so include that information here:
