[pkg-golang-devel] Go compiler team

Dear all,

recently, I've become involved in the golang compiler packaging. I did
some cleanups of obsolete packages (golang-1.6 up to golang-1.9) and
asked for removal from unstable.

FTP master has now removed those packages, and I'm currently trying to
get the release team to rebuild all arch:any go packages with the
current compiler in unstable, so that those packages have a fresh


Regarding the compiler packages, I've uploaded golang-1.11 to NEW, and
it has been accepted a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, the build on
mips64el fails, and I'm not sure why. Any help would be appreciated here.


Last, not least, a beta release of golang-1.12 is around the corner, and
I plan to upload it rather soon, so that we have a chance to get the
package accepted in time for buster.

Which leads me to my next question: The mailing list I'm currently
writing to has been migrated from alioth. However, it seems to me that
it mostly attracts spam (and the automatic mails from FTP master).

Should this list be kept? My suggestion would be to set up a team at
tracker.d.o (e.g. "go-compiler") and use the address
"team+go-compiler at tracker.d.o" as maintainer address in d/control.
Everybody who would like to get notifications about new uploads, bugs
etc. can then join that team. Thoughts?

Last, not least, is anyone working on the security support of golang
packages for buster? See the thread starting here:
