    Add script to convert README.md to JSON

    Great project. In case someone wants to host this somewhere or analyze the content of these links, I wrote a Python script to process the README file and convert it to a JSON object for people to use. Thank goodness for Quincy's consistent writing to make this task easier.

    I hope you and others will find it useful. Cheers!

  • Add github action for building emails.json

    Add github action for building emails.json

    Description

    This PR adds a github action that runs every time there's a push event on the main branch. The action runs the convert_readme.py file, and commits the emails.json file, when there's any differences in the file after running the script.

    Why is this needed?

    Though not necessary, this adds a slightly more comfortable layer on top of contributing to the list, someone can just edit the README.md file in the format the file follows, and it can be either manually converted by them, or the github action can automatically make the file(thus ensuring that the json file is always up-to-date).
