Description

Through some recent pulp_dev mailing list discussions, we realize that we have conflicting communication around licensing of pulpcore and pulpcore-plugin. The conclusion is that these are "GPLv2 or any later version" [2]. Let's clean this up and fix any mis-representations/errors indicating GPLv2 (without the later.)

[2] https://pulp.plan.io/projects/pulp/wiki/Pulp_Licensing_FAQ#What-license-does-pulpcore-and-pulpcore-plugin-use

Here are some areas I am aware of:
  1. https://github.com/pulp/pulpcore-plugin/blob/master/README.rst
  2. https://github.com/pulp/pulpcore/blob/master/README.md
  3. Check all repos in Pulp organization (especially those new to Pulp 3) to ensure COPYRIGHT file exists:
  1. https://github.com/pulp/pulplift
  1. Check following plugins for clear copyright/licensing (at least at beta release and staffed by Red Hat): file, python, RPM, docker, pulp_ansible
