It is worth remembering that Debian is not only a stable release. Statically built Golang apps are easy to install from testing/unstable into stable and packaging still provides certain benefits. Stable Debian release protects users from sudden unexpected and disruptive changes but some prefer to run their systems from "testing". With rapidly changing upstream projects users can't have peace anywhere neither in Debian nor with upstream. Also most complex Golang apps usually don't even get into "stable" due to massive removals from "testing" on bugs in any of their dependency libraries (direct or indirect). Stabilising the whole Golang ecosystem so few heavy packages could migrate is a long effort but we are getting there... -- All the best, Dmitry Smirnov. --- Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment.
