#' package2zenodo
#'
#' Creates a .zenodo.json for a R package. This file is an
#' (officially unsupported) method to provide ZENODO with metadata information
#' about the package and will overwrite the information ZENODO would otherwise
#' auto-generate from the repository.
#'
#' @param package either the path to the main folder of a package (containing a DESCRIPTION file)
#' or the name of the package. If a path is provided the .zenodo.json file will be directly added
#' to the folder. Otherwise the content of such a file is just returned.
#' @author Jan Philipp Dietrich
#' @importFrom jsonlite toJSON

#' @importFrom withr local_connection
#' @return The metadata information that should be provided to Zenodo in JSON format.
