NEO/go licensing

We want to make sure the code can be used by all projects without a
problem. This way the license is GPLv3+ with wide exception for all Free
Software / Open Source projects + Business options.

Nexedi stack is licensed under Free Software licenses with various exceptions
that cover three business cases:

- Free Software
- Proprietary Software
- Rebranding

As long as one intends to develop Free Software based on Nexedi stack, no
license cost is involved. Developing proprietary software based on Nexedi stack
may require a proprietary exception license. Rebranding Nexedi stack is
prohibited unless rebranding license is acquired.

Through this licensing approach, Nexedi expects to encourage Free Software
development without restrictions and at the same time create a framework for
proprietary software to contribute to the long term sustainability of the
Nexedi stack.

Please see for details, rationale and options.

( NEO/py for now stays at the old terms but it will be upgraded to the same
  terms as NEO/go eventually )
