I’d like to get the irtt package refreshed and squash a bug: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=892429, but I’m behind on pkg-go, coming from alioth, and have a few basic questions to get up to speed:
1) I created a guest account on salsa and requested access to "Debian Go Packaging Team”. Right track?
2) Is there a quick tutorial on pulling in new releases from upstream? One complication is, my upstream (on GitHub) had it’s history re-written to change my email address. Is that possible on salsa? Not recommended?
Ugh. This might be problematic. Not sure. You’ll see? :)
3) I’d like to build with the standard Go compiler instead of gccgo. I currently have this in Build-Depends in the control file:
Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 11),
Should I just replace golang-any with golang-go, or is it preferred that we actually support gccgo?
What’s your motivation to do so? Definitely leave a comment if you go that route. Also, note that this will mean that your package will be available on fewer architectures (some are supported by gccgo, but not by gc).
