Literate builds use the README.md file in the root of a software project to store the build instructions for Jenkins. In most normal projects the README file is either missing or hopelessly out of date. By using this file as the source of build instructions, we ensure that the file is kept correct and up to date. If the build tool changes from a batch file / shell script to a Makefile to an Ant build.xml to a Maven pom.xml, it doesn't matter, because the README.md will be updated with the code (or Jenkins will report a failed build).
