Add a file in the repository root with the same content as
the "About" page.

Gitiles will render the README by default when the project is viewed
on the googlesource site [1] and this will make the configuration
documentation and list of supported hooks more easily accessible for
users who have not installed the plugin yet in their Gerrit site.

+# Hooks plugin
+Gerrit does not support the [standard server-side git hooks][1] in the
+repositories it manages.
+This plugin adds support for custom hooks that can be run instead. Refer
+to the [configuration documentation][2] and [list of supported hooks][3]
+for details.
