Motivation and Context
At the very least, we need to make sure all these sources of information stay in sync. From what I've seen of other open source software projects, everything a potential user should need to know should show up in the README.md or CONTRIBUTING.md file. If either of those gets too lengthy and it seems prudent to break the information up over the wiki, everything should still be linked back into those files.
