golang-fsnotify builds only binary-all packages. golang-fsnotify contains testcases. This is not a normal FTBFS that you would see on the autobuilders (no autobuilder ever tried to build golang-fsnotify), but if you would try to build golang-fsnotify on ppc64el I assume the build would fail due to failing testcases. cu Adrian -- "Is there not promise of rain?"
