License doc cleanup

  • We have the license text twice:
    • docs/user/license.rst includes |version| in multiple places. It says specifically “License agreement for matplotlib |version|”.
    • LICENSE/LICENSE only states “License agreement for matplotlib versions 1.3.0 and later”
      IMO we should only have one license text.
  • We have extensive coverage for pre-1.3.0 copyright and license in https://matplotlib.org/stable/users/license.html. Do we have to provide that information at all? If we have to, would it be sufficient to “For copyright and license of matplotlib prior to version 1.3.0 see https://matplotlib.org/1.3.0/users/license.html“.

  1. @rajpratyush thanks for your interest. However, I don’t think you can contribute here. The difficult part is finding out what we want to/have to do. This is something we have to disucuss among core devs.
