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

Dear Maintainer,

The files installed as /usr/share/go/src/runtime/race/*.syso are not built
during package build, but rather come directly from the Go source distribution.
To ensure that they are built from what they claim to be, in Ubuntu we do not
distribute these files in the golang-src package but rather build them in a
separate golang-race-detector-runtime package which golang-go Recommends:. It
would be nice if Debian could steal this work :-)
