There have been conversations with the security team about supporting Go
applications but they are not comfortable with it due to the compile-time
nature of the packaging.
If there is a CVE in package X you need to recompile and upload everything
that Build-Depends on X. Maintainers will also need to recompile and upload
everything that B-D's on the B-Ds as it's not transitive.
There is a plan somewhere to move to creating shared libraries instead of
packaging source code in -dev debs and I may get around to doing this during
the Buster cycle. It's only relatively recently that this feature was
Go and in Debian.
