[openstack-dev] [tc] License for specs repo

It appears that many of the existing specs repos contain a confusing 
mixture of Apache 2.0 licensed code and Creative Commons licensed docs.

The official cookie-cutter for creating new specs repos [1] appears to 
also contain a mixture of the two licenses, although it's even more 
confusing because it seems an attempt was made to change the license 
from Apache to Creative Commons [2] yet there are still several [3] 
places [4] where Apache is clearly specified.

I personally have no opinion on what license should be used, but I'd 
like to clearly specify the license for the newly-created manila-specs 
repo, and I'm happy with whatever the TC is currently recommending.
