README: add better description

Move the README to README.md so Gerrit can render it; currently
Gerrit only renders files named exactly "README.md" (for example at
https://go.googlesource.com/go).

Add more links to the README explaining how to file issues,
how to submit code changes, where to download the code to and
how to get it. Hopefully this should help people who go to
https://go.googlesource.com/review or https://github.com/golang/review
figure out how to get started with development.

The review binary itself is available at golang.org/x/review/git-codereview. Run git codereview hooks to install Gerrit hooks for your git repository.

Report Issues / Send Patches

This repository uses Gerrit for code changes. To learn how to submit changes to this repository, see https://golang.org/doc/contribute.html.

The main issue tracker for the review repository is located at https://github.com/golang/go/issues. Prefix your issue with “x/review:” in the subject line, so it is easy to find.
