Perhaps I'm not the best person to speak on the matter as I've never touched any Golang tools except dh-golang. Situation with Golab libraries is not ideal (to say the least) but I understand that Golang is not the only language without concept of dynamic linking. As I recall someone mentioned Haskell as another example. It is my understanding that when vulnerability is fixed in Golang library it should be sufficient to NMU (re-build) all reverse dependencies. I believe that Golang stuff that we've packaged should become part of next release even without security support. Debian simply won't be competitive without container tools so excluding Golang is not an option. IMHO shipping container-related software should be our strategic priority for next release. -- Cheers, Dmitry Smirnov. --- In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule. -- Friedrich Nietzsche
