(Per discussion with dcf in #12903, filing this as a separate ticket from the obfs4 stuff.)

With meek and (soon) obfs4 using Go and certain dependencies, the Go 3 clause BSD license should be distributed as part of the bundles under Browser/TorBrowser/Docs/Licenses/PluggableTransports.

The license:

I have this fixed in my obfs4 integration branch, so I will pull that part out and attach a patch shortly.

It looks good to me. I'd say that the Go license is short enough we can just include it in the main LICENSE file, if you wanted to go that way. I think the reason that LICENSE.PYTHON and LICENSE.CC0 are split out into separate files is to prevent duplication because they are cross-referenced in multiple places.

A lot of dependencies in the Go world use the boilerplate Go license, including, go.crypto and agl's ed25519 package. I'm thinking that I should explicitly list those components and cross reference the Go license, so unless someone tells me otherwise, I will leave it split.
