Change default license, educate new authors on license choice implications

The default UI when creating a project is ARR license which means when an author goes missing, quits, gets hit by a bus, or turn into a psychopath (recent example to be provided if needed/not obvious), the work is lost and the users suffer (and the community can't pick up the effort and improve it)

I suggest the default would be LGPLv2 instead with some education as to why or some warning for ARR
