uDig Change to EPL and BSD License

Quick update on the results of the uDig License Change.

First up thanks to the community for filling in the survey, asking questions, and reviewing options on the email list.

The Project Steering Committee has accepted an RFC making uDig available under a dual BSD and EPL license. This is an excellent compromise between using BSD to share code with projects such as GeoTools, while retaining the protection afforded by the Eclipse Public License as we work with downstream Eclipse RCP projects.

There will be a bit of work ahead as we make the transition, thank you for your continued support.
