Interesting.  I see the differences.

The reason the file was named READme rather than README is because README
isn't visible on the Apache distro site [1].  I don't remember why but
infra did figure it out and decided it could not be fixed.  If you go thru
the old mail you might fine the discussion.  I believe README.txt does
display but according to the Apache docs README is preferred.  I've seen
both in use by Apache projects.
