I packaged up the new Go release yesterday and moved it over to stable earlier today.
Usually new Go minor releases frequently include new compiler improvements and some assorted runtime changes. Previous releases I have done complete rebuilds of Go packages in our repositories but the reception for these rebuilds have been a bit mixed.
People do not really see the need to rebuild $goWorld when packages a compiled and nothing inherently breaks unless there is a rebuild. We don't do this for GCC, Rust and so on. However I do think it's nice to group up these ecosystem changes in one swoop as it spares me from having to repeat myself for the next few months as people occasionally update their Go packages.
But on the other hand I'm not super eager to be alone rebuilding all of this either. So what are peoples thoughts on the subject?
I'm in favor of rebuilding, just ask foutrelis to spin up his rebuilder and it should be done in no time :)
