Re: plans for golang packages in z

Hi Michael,
I think this is a great idea - because I heard from IBM that Go 1.7 contains several s390x patches that make the z support sound,
and that kubernetes will be re-based to golang 1.7 at some point in time, which would allow to build it for s390x without any further adjustment.

Bye, Frank

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.
