I'm the maintainer of the gosh package, and this seems reasonable enough to me, but obviously there's the concern that people who have the old gosh installed may be using it and not want this to go through (though I doubt there are many of them).
Thanks for your reply. I too imagine there likely aren't that many of them, and installing Go programs is usually straightforward anyway.
If my input is at all necessary (which I doubt) I'm happy with any decision from the TUs. I assume there's some kind of protocol for this.
It seems like the request was rejected. TUs, is there a protocol for this? The rejection mentioned that minimal activity in early 2017 is enough to keep the package around, so should I file a request again in a few months?
I realise that no activity for two years is usually OK for most packages, but with Go having a major release every six months, any Go interpreter that hasn't had updates for more than two releases is likely just unmaintained.
