      Description

      Please review and update README.markdown file in preparation for 7.2 release. See License section

      From Matija Suklje:

      I would only suggest the following change to update the licensing section with the newer boiler plate text suggested by FSF; as well as include an SPDX ID:

      SPDX-License-Identifier: LGPL-2.1-or-later
      
      Liferay Portal Community Edition is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation, either version 2.1 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.
      
      Liferay Portal Community Edition is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the GNU Lesser General Public License for more details.
      
      You should have received a copy of the GNU Lesser General Public License along with Liferay Portal Community Edition.  If not, see <https://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.

      This update is not necessarily needed, but highly suggested as the old text suggested as if Liferay Portal was a software library, which is not true.

      I also suggested to add a SPDX ID (with a link), which is the de-facto industry standard to tag licensing information to code.
