Some links broken in README
Some links broken in README is original issue.
And I tried to fix links, but some problems occur.
- Current README.md's link is
[win32/README.win32](win32/README.win32)and it works on github, but rdoc generates broken link.
- Using rdoc-ref suggested in Convert links to local files in markdown, it works rdoc generated html, but it does not work on github.
- Plain filename becomes link on rdoc generated html, but it does not become link on github.
- Sample site: https://md-link-test-2018.netlify.com/
- Source: https://github.com/znz/md-link-test-2018
Which is better?
Is there other better solution?

I can't answer your two questions, but for what it's worth,
aycabta commented on the linked/associated github issue:
I think that GitHub's UI isn't important for Ruby. And,
I don't want to optimize RDoc for GitHub.
I personally am not hugely active on github, but I am very
active on rubygems.org. There, I do try to have my README.md
files work, bcause end users may want to read it. (I actually
autogenerated these .md files, through ruby, via a README.gen
I use only very plain markdown rules; rdoc-ref would seem
way too complex for me to use. :D
IMO, many people use github to browse and read source code
and I think that many more people do so these days, as
compared to reading a .md file locally/offline, so I personally
think that github UI is also important, simply because people
make use of it a lot.
I don't know of a solution that works for both, but I think
rdoc could be fixed more easily. If aycabta does not want to
do so that is fine; perhaps someone else has an idea, or we
may have a solution that works on both. At any rate, that is
just my 2 cc.
