Severity: normal

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 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

Maintainer: Go Compiler Team <>

------------------- 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!

We believe that the bug you reported is now fixed; the following
package(s) have been removed from unstable:

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

------------------- Reason -------------------
ROM; NVIU; binary packages taken over by src:golang-defaults

Note that the package(s) have simply been removed from the tag
database and may (or may not) still be in the pool; this is not a bug.
The package(s) will be physically removed automatically when no suite
references them (and in the case of source, when no binary references
it).  Please also remember that the changes have been done on the
master archive and will not propagate to any mirrors until the next
dinstall run at the earliest.

Packages are usually not removed from testing by hand. Testing tracks
unstable and will automatically remove packages which were removed
from unstable when removing them from testing causes no dependency
problems. The release team can force a removal from testing if it is
really needed, please contact them if this should be the case.

We try to close bugs which have been reported against this package
automatically. But please check all old bugs, if they were closed
correctly or should have been re-assigned to another package.

Thank you for reporting the bug, which will now be closed.  If you
have further comments please address them to
