A Pulp Update Proposal (PUP) pull request has been opened by the
go-to-lawyer for the Pulp community, Richard Fontana. The PUP is PUP5 [0].
I don't want to paraphrase it here, so please read it [0] if you are
interested to understand what it does.

I am proposing a period of questions/discussion via the list/PR and then a
call for a vote according to the process. All questions are welcome, please

# Timeline

Today - May 18th mailing list and PR discussion
May 18th - formally call for a vote which would end 12 calendar days from
then May 30th
May 30th - Merge or reject

# FAQs

Is this relicensing Pulp?
No. It's still GPLv2. This adopts a procedural enforment approach within
the existing license. See @rfontana's response here:

Do all prior contributors need to sign off on this change?
No, because it's not a relicensing.

Does this affect core, plugins, or both?
This PR is only scoped to affect the GPLv2 codebases maintained by the core
team. Plugins make their own decisions without PUPs. Initially this would
be pulp/pulp, and as other GPLv2 repositories are maintained by the core
team, it would apply to this in the future as well.
