And if you look at dal/README.md https://github.com/go-bootstrap/go-bootstrap/tree/master/bla... , they say that they got the "data access layer" defintion from wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_access_layer , and in the last line of the wiki page says:

> Object-Relational Mapping tools provide data layers in this fashion, following the active record model. The ORM/active-record model is popular with web frameworks.


It may be technically true that this DAL is not really on ORM, but saying that the project skeleton does not contain an ORM is misleading at best. It would be simplest to just rework the language to something like, "a lightweight ORM" or "a database access layer like what's found in traditional ORMs" or something.
