[docs] [issue15460] SQLite cursor.description is not DB-API compatible

Gerhard Häring <gh at ghaering.de> added the comment:

SQLite's columns aren't typed, only SQLite values are. So it's entirely possible for the same column to have different types, like the NULL type, the INTEGER type and the TEXT type.

It's thus impossible to give meaningful type information in a SQLite3 DB-API module. That's why it's set to None instead.

resolution:  -> wont fix
status: open -> closed
