plans for golang packages in z


It'd be nice to switch the default golang package to 1.7 during the toolchain update part of the z development cycle. This is just a matter of uploading a golang-defaults package with a version like 2:1.7+0ubuntu1. It the stars align, the go team will release Go 1.7.2 before this happens but I don't think waiting very long for that makes sense.

I guess in practice this is just a pre-emptive request to the release team to allow my golang-defaults upload through nice and early.
