Creating a README.md file

Hi there,

I recently hosted a project which already had a README file and by default the repository is using this file to show it contents in the repository's Overview. But this is not the content I wanna show in the Overview because it's a README to read when the user download the code.

Is it possible to create another readme file maybe README.md to show in the repository's Overview?

If yes, then how can I specify that this is the one to show in the Overview?

If you have a README.md and a README at the root of your project won't Bitbucket show the .md version of the README?
