I have started working on that.

PET will take a lot of effort to migrate, if that ever happens.

But now we are introducing inconsistencies in the group packages, while
there was no need to change the links if we have waited.

But that means re-uploading every one of our 891 packages.

Well, this is part of the problem. These are not "your packages" or "my
packages". We have a team where we decided that mainteinance is
collaborative and that nobody owns the packages.

What you are saying here goes against all that, and reverses efforts put
into making pkg-go collaborative and welcoming.

To make this more evident, I noticed this happened because I wanted to
work on a package that you moved. That package is a dependency of
prometheus, so I *need* to keep it healthy in order to ship prometheus
in Debian. If you look at the changelog of raft, you will see that the
last two uploads were done by me.
