      Description

      GitHub uses a library called Licensee to identify a project's license
      type. It shows this information in the status bar and via the API if it
      can unambiguously identify the license.
       
      This commit modifies a few of MariaDB's docs so that Licensee is able
      to recognize the repository's license type. It renames the README's
      "License" section to "Licensing" and renames COPYING.thirdparty to
      THIRDPARTY.
       
      These changes allow Licensee to bypass both files when it
      scans the repo for license files, which thus allows Licensee to
      successfully identify the license type of MariaDB as GPL 2.0.
