You should quote the link in the source array and any string that
includes a Bash variable (e.g. use `install -Dm 755
"$pkgname-go-$pkgver" "$pkgdir/usr/bin/$pkgname-go"`).

You can remove the dependency on 'bash' because you shouldn't include
dependency information for any packages in the groups 'base' or

Unless this package will _only_ work for 64-bit systems, you should
change the arch array to the following:
    arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

And this is a minor issue, but you should change the GitHub links to
use https:// so the source download will _always_ use HTTPS, even if
the http -> https redirect that GitHub uses stops working for whatever
