I agree, debian/rules of golang packages is (ideally) trivial.

That said, I can think of quite a few metrics to evaluate maintainer
ability based on golang packaging: how carefully has debian/copyright
been composed; to which extent has the maintainer collaborated with
upstream, e.g., to motivate them to tag releases, to file pull requests
for forked packages so that the original packages can be used in Debian,
to fix their test suite, to ask for license clarification, etc.
