[pkg-golang-devel] Bug#839690: RM: golang -- ROM; NVIU; binary packages taken over by src:golang-defaults

Package: ftp.debian.org
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-CC: pkg-golang-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org

The src:golang package's binaries are now provided by
src:golang-defaults (coupled with src:golang-1.7), following the
workflow of gcc, java, etc. for supporting multiple versions, and thus
src:golang is ripe for archive removal. :)

(Sorry for not filing this RM request sooner -- had forgotten that we
needed to do so manually until #839364 was filed and Michael pointed
out the discrepancy.)

I ran a dry-run of "dak rm" on mirror and got the following, but I
think it's a false positive similar to the one seen in #835855 (given
that the version of the "golang" binary package in unstable/testing is
currently 2:1.7~1):

$ ssh mirror.ftp-master.debian.org dak rm -Rn golang
Will remove the following packages from unstable:

    golang |  2:1.6.1-2 | source, all
golang-doc |  2:1.6.1-2 | all

------------------- Reason -------------------


Checking reverse dependencies...
# Broken Build-Depends:
aptly: golang (>= 1.1)
golang-github-vishvananda-netlink: golang
golang-github-vishvananda-netns: golang
golang-gocapability-dev: golang
golang-golang-x-exp: golang-doc
golang-golang-x-tools: golang-doc
heartbleeder: golang (>= 1.2)

Dependency problem found.

If I'm mistaken and there's something more I need to do, I'm happy to
oblige given a pointer in the right direction. :)

Thanks for all the work you do on behalf of the project!
