Package: golang-github-appc-cni
Severity: wishlist


Please update to new upstream version of 0.7.0-alpha1. I need it as a
build dependency of http://github.com/containers/buildah

In fact, I've done so locally, and would be happy to upload it as a Team
Upload. I was running into issues while doing so. Unlike the git
repositories created by the dh-make-golang tool, the git repository on
salsa at
https://salsa.debian.org/go-team/packages/golang-github-appc-cni does
not include full sources in the packaging branch. I am unfamiliar with
that workflow and it is inconsistent with how the vast majority of the
packages in the golang team are handled. I therefore decided to start
off from a 'dgit clone' created repository.

Dimtry, I wonder what your thoughts on this issue are.  Would you be OK
with switching the workflow? If not, could you please upload
0.7.0-alpha1 to experimental soon? Alternatively, I could upload the
package that I have locally to experimental, and leave updating salsa to
you (or someone else) whenever time permits.

What does the rest of the team think about competing git repository
workflows within the team? At least to me, this seems undesireable
because it prompts convesations like this (which I really don't enjoy
