Johanna Amann commented on BIT-1275:

The readme points to the install file, which in turn is just a pointer to doc/install/install.rst which contains all installation instructions, including the required dependencies.

I think that is ok and I like the short readme we have at the moment. We could perhaps think about making INSTALL a symlink to doc/install/install.rst instead of the current file.
