Thanks for considering helping out in Debian!

As Rock said before, that's pretty much it in simple cases for Go packages. What can be tricky is hunting the vendored modules which aren't allowed in Debian > (so you need to package them, or find out if they're not already packaged under another name, etc). But that's more a Go ecosystem thing than a Debian one ;)

While it always makes sense to de-vendor and package and package the dependency, there is no rule/policy that dis-allows vendoring modules as long
as the copyrights are correct. Infact a bunch of packages actually do vendor modules.
(I can't accept you now, sorry, I'd need my token which I don't have with me atm… Hopefyully someone else will ;) ).

Mark, I have added you to the team. Welcome!
