SDP-356

Reduce SDP Core to contain only software supported by Perforce Support.

This will come with a simplification in messaging related to support for the SDP, as described in the README.md file, in the 'Supported Open Source Software' section.  Essentially, all remaining software components of the SDP, after this trimming, will be fully supported by Perforce Support (for customers with valid Helix Core licenses and when installed by Perforce Consulting).

Software from the SDP project will be relocated as follows:
* The SDP Core will remain in `//guest/perforce_software/sdp`.  It will be smaller, and have a greater emphasis on test coverage with automated tests and consistently maintained documentation.
* The HMS software will go back to being a standalone project in `//guest/perforce_software/hms`. There it will be community supported and/or driven by paid consulting engagements.
* Other parts of the SDP will be moved to a new Workshop project HxAdmin Tools, in `//guest/perforce_software/hxadmin_tools`. There it will be community supported.  The HxAdmin Tools will be a collection of tools that are decided to be outside the scope of the Core SDP.

The branch specs SDP_Split_2019.2_HMS and SDP_Split_2019.2_HxAdminTools capture the details
of refactoring, indicating which files in the current SDP will get moved.  For details,

https://swarm.workshop.perforce.com/view/spec/branch/SDP_Split_2019.2_HxAdmin_Tools

== Open Source ==

All 3 products, SDP, HMS, and HxAdmin Tools will remain open source
and remain open to contribution by customers.

The HMS and HxAdmin Tools will be community supported, driven by
customer contributions and paid Consulting engagements.
