[pkg-go] Bug#924628: go-dep: Latest dep has different Gopkg.toml format, causing thrashing with old version

Package: go-dep
Version: 0.5.0-1+b10
Severity: normal

Please update dep to something relatively new.

Currently, if you share repos between debian and non-debian systems (e.g.
macos), the Gopkg.lock file format switches back and forth between trailing
commas on the last item of an array to no trailing commas.

This makes diff/merge thrashing a huge pain.

Please keep both golang and dep at least more or less up to date in a
timely fashion.

The only real workaround is `go get github.com/golang/dep`,
`go install ./cmd/dep`
