that's a pretty frustrating request in a way, but of course you're the
least responsible for the frustration here. :)

Unfortunately the blacklist is on a per-source package name basis and
given that your source package is versioned that means that someone
needs to update the blacklist manually on the affected buildds whenever
a new major version of Go has been uploaded.

I did the needful on zani and zemlinsky, but it means that I need to
even more actively pursue the replacement of these with z196+ era
machines. (At least) current SUSE also does not support the z10 anymore,
so we are essentially stuck on a dinosaur. But LinuxONE might be able to
help us out.

Kind regards and thanks
