Yes, I think I have done as you requested -- including correcting the 
misspelling of copyright.
Not having a license file in a release .tar.gz is not very good, so 
thanks for noticing it.

do all
before the next release.  Thanks for submitting them, they are very helpful.

If this is a blocker, please explain to me why.  I would like to make the
next release 9.4.2 as quickly as possible, so I would like to skip fixing
this until the author of lockmgr fixes it.
