Patch to switch to PyWebDAV3 0.9.10

The upstream for pywebdav is gone:

However, the code was picked up by Andrew Leech for the aioeasywebdav project, and ported to Python 3 while keeping 2.7 compatibility. It is now developed and released here:

I've checked the porting changes made, and aside from a few stylistic issues and a encoding bug (for which i filed pull requests), they look fine.

Here is a specfile patch to switch Fedora's pywebdav package to PyWebDAV3. I've also included a few modernizations, and put the README in the %doc.

If this is unacceptable I can package this separately as python3-pywebdav, but I believe PyWebDAV3 is as legitimate an heir to the pywebdav name as we can get.
