Hi friends,
My specs for readme.txt say:
The names of the files you have submitted, with a note of their location in the directory structure, and a high level description of the purpose of each.

Apart from the src files from the application i also have javadoc files,do i need to document them as well or i will be ok by including index file for javadoc
Kindly comment
