Description

As reported in https://github.com/OpenNebula/docs/issues/30

Please add license and copyright statement to `README.md`.
Assuming the same license as OpenNebula it would be something like

Copyright 2002-2015 OpenNebula Project (OpenNebula.org), C12G Labs

I can't adequately express my disappointment regarding choice of a non-free (non-commercial) license CC-BY-SA-NC-3.0.

I doubt that non-commercial restriction is necessary. In particular this means that we won't be able to ship OpenNebula documentation in Debian. :(

Please reconsider.

That's better, thanks.

However Copyright statement is still missing...

Also license grant uses non-canonical wording -- see https://wiki.creativecommons.org/wiki/Marking_your_work_with_a_CC_license#How_to_use_the_CC_License_Chooser for instructions how to apply CC licenses.

Recommended text is "This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License."

Finally, the latest version of CC licenses is 4.0, not 3.0...
