Turned a redundancy in the "Scale" section of fossil-v-git into a clearer point. Also added a bit on Fossil's later birthday and our take on its consequences. check-in: 30a74d7e user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl

Re-cast the "BSD vs GPL" section as "Accepting Contributions." In the end, that's what the difference in license amounts to. This makes the section longer, but the change includes a link to skip past the actual licensing discussion for those who don't want to read our attempt at an unbiased discussion of GPL vs BSD, since even if we've succeded, we won't always agree with the user's biases! check-in: 75e93e35 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
