Well, in this case it's just the other way around. The HTML file exists and the
markdown file is needed. (and note that pandoc knows nothing about the CTAN
dialect of markdown;-)

In fact I have discovered another trick. For TeXlive it should be enough to
simply rename README to README.md and adjust the link accordingly. Unfortunately
this reveals a bug in the CTAN markdown implementation. I will have a look into
it this evening...
