[pkg-go] Bug#839109: dh-golang: Possibly wrong XS- prefix for Go-Import-Path field

Package: dh-golang
Version: 1.19
Severity: normal


It seems that many Go packages include an XS-Go-Import-Path field in
their control file, which AFAICT is only (?) used at build time from
inside the same source package.

The XS- prefix tells dpkg-source to propagate that field to the source
package (.dsc) and that in turn gets propagated to the Sources indices.
With the additional bloat. If this field is never used by querying the
Sources indices, I'd appreciate if you could switch to simply use the
X- prefix instead.
