[pkg-golang-devel] Bug#807294: golang-go: contains some but not all race-enabled packages

Package: golang-go
Version: 1.5.1-4
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

As you can see on https://packages.debian.org/sid/amd64/golang-go/filelist
there are quite a few race-enabled package .a files included in the package.
They are there because of the race-testing ./run.bash does. I think it's a bit
silly that a subset of such packages are installed: either all of them should
be installed (this is what the 1.4 packaging did I think), or none of them.
apart from anything else, this means that if DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nocheck actually
worked (see bug 807290 <wink>), the files included in the package would change
depending on whether DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nocheck was set or not, which seems like
a bad thing to me.

Happy to implement either option if given an opinion!
