Other than the noted point that it takes time, is there any reason why Pulp
should stay on the current license instead of moving to GPLv3 (one of the
stated alternatives in this PUP)? I don't know much about the differences
currently, but it strikes me that our new Pulp 3 using Python 3 would be a
good fit for moving to a new license as well that has taken various things
such as this enforcement issue into account and evolved over time.
