Creating nicely formatted PDFs from Markdown files with Atom editor

The current approach to having our proposals in version control is to generate PDFs from Markdown files. (This is much simpler to set up and use than our previous http://www.latex-project.org/">LaTeX approach, at the cost of losing some formatting control which we weren't using anyway.)

After https://atom.io/">installing Atom, install the above-referenced packages with:

apm install markdown-pdf paste-table vim-mode-plus

Or (if just starting with Atom) https://gitlab.com/mlncn/atom">copy ben's Atom setup.
