The author of go-sqlite3, Yasuhiro Matsumoto, has now added a license
file and added the license headers to the source files. These changes
are evident in the following commits:

* https://github.com/mattn/go-sqlite3/commit/592f5d512e03c0a0ed3d4c20e1d26b7b67594b1b

* https://github.com/mattn/go-sqlite3/commit/5e5d088a3662a12104630827ac6926f7626d23cf

* https://github.com/mattn/go-sqlite3/commit/060db06a281a4f182a11585951c19be70a185a97

In addition, with respect to the C source code that has been copied
from the Sqlite project, these files already have a file header which
specifies that the copyright has been disclaimed by the authors. This
fact can be verified at the Sqlite project where the entire source
code is declared as being in the public domain:

* http://www.sqlite.org/copyright.html

Please let me know if there is anything else that is blocking inclusion of TMSU.

Many thanks,
