Description

Change the licence of all AGPL project to GPLv3.

That means:

In the code:

- changing all the headers \o/ (be careful, the copyright year must be concerved)
- changing the LICENSE file for the one available at: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0.txt
- adapting the LICENSE_EXCEPTION file: change reference from AGPL to GPL. Nothing else need to be done since the refered article are the same on both licence.

In packaging:

- changing packages information about licensing

The scope of the licence change goes beyond pur Rudder code. Reference to AGPL must be changed every where they are found: in documentation and other resources like tutorial or slides, wikipedia (for example, https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Affero_General_Public_License), etc.
