Dynamically create README Files from Azure DevOps Pipeline and Commit to Repository

Bernie White has a Powershell Module (PSDocs) that can generate mark down files (*.md) and Stefan Stranger’s blog post shows us how to upload these to Azure DevOps Wiki. We started investigating this as we saw this being a great feature to automate the creation and maintenance of our README.md files within our IaC Templates. The only issue is that our README.md files live side by side with our ARM Templates in the Azure DevOps Repositories and not in the Wiki section that Stefan’s post updates. So the challenge is, how do we make our Azure Pipelines write back the README.md files it dynamically creates on the build agent to the repository?
