[PATCH] eng/license-requirements: Convert wiki page to Rest

Converted https://devel.rtems.org/wiki/Developer/Coding/Deprecating
to Rest, and TBDs into comments.

I removed the line that said "The RTEMS License is the typical and
preferred license." because this information is already in the first
and second paragraphs. Also because it linked to a TBR wiki page.

This work was part of GCI 2018.
