* Tue Aug 11 2015
- fix update from 1.3.3
  Update from 1.3.3 was broken in this commit
  That commit fixed a dangling symlink in src (src/pkg) by instead
  symlinking src, which broke compatibility.
  This commit fixes it by, instead, symlinking all the files in src.
* Wed Jul 22 2015
- macros.go: fix missing quotes in %goinstall (bsc#939067)
* Sun Jul 12 2015
- macros.go: fix "summary-not-capitalized"
* Thu Jul 09 2015
- macros.go:
  * *-doc can't properly describe what the sub-package really is,
    and they're mostly source codes instead of the claimed "API,
    documentation, and examples". so rename to *-source. and not
    recommend to install them to save users' disk space.
  * %%go_requires should be handled automatically by golang-packaging
  * not recommend to install source package any more,
    so %%go_recommmends set to nil.
* Sun Jul 05 2015
- macros.go:
  * add a "WITH_FAKE_BUILDID" option to enable the fake build ID
  * to fake build ID, you have to make sure your package has only
    one binary. it is nonsense that two or more nonidentical
    binaries have the same build ID.
* Sat Jul 04 2015
- enable debuginfo
  * the strip workaround (boo#818502) does not need any more
  * re-enable debug_packge/debug_install_post macros
- add patch: go-1.4.2-rel.plt-alignment.patch
  * cmd/ld: set alignment for the .rel.plt section on 32-bit architectures
  * or i586 build will fail at extracting debuginfo
- macros.go:
  * re-enable debug_packge/debug_install_post macros from goprep()
  * add ldflags to gobuild() to compute BUILD ID for debuginfo package
- go itself doesn't support BUILD ID yet
* Thu Jun 11 2015
- Remove fix_certificates_lookup_on_sles11.patch: this is superseded
  by fix_certificates.patch
- Add fix_certificates_lookup.patch: force Go to look for certificates only
  in the locations available on openSUSE and SLE. Also ensure certificates
  are found on SLE11 (previous fix_certificates_lookup_on_sles11.patch)
* Thu Jun 11 2015

Version: 1.10.4-bp150.2.3.1
* Wed Oct 31 2018 Aleksa Sarai <>
- Remove golang(API) provides, since the go<ver> packages now provide this and
  providing it here causes issues when building under SLE12 (not to mention
  being confusing -- since golang(API) is used to pin versions). boo#1114209
* Mon Aug 27 2018
- Update to version 1.10.4:
  * go1.10.4 (released 2018/08/24) includes fixes to the go command,
    linker, and the net/http, mime/multipart, ld/macho, bytes, and
    strings packages. See the Go 1.10.4 milestone on our issue
    tracker for details.
* Sun Jun 10 2018
- Update to version1.10.3:
  * go1.10.3 (released 2018/06/05) includes fixes to the go command,
    and the crypto/tls, crypto/x509, and strings packages. In particular,
    it adds minimal support to the go command for the vgo transition.
    See the Go 1.10.3 milestone on our issue tracker for details.
* Thu May 17 2018
- Update to version 1.10.2:
  * includes fixes to the compiler, linker, and go command.
- Changes in version 1.10.1:
  * includes fixes to the compiler, runtime, and the archive/zip,
    crypto/tls, crypto/x509, encoding/json, net, net/http, and net/http/pprof packages.
- Changes in version 1.10:
  * This release improves caching of built packages, adds caching of successful
    test results, runs vet automatically during tests, and permits passing string
    values directly between Go and C using cgo. A new compiler option whitelist may
    cause unexpected invalid flag errors in code that built successfully with older releases.
* Tue Feb 13 2018
- Provide golang(API) = 1.9, so that this symbol can be required
  and provided, as preferred one, by the unversioned go package.
Version: 1.12-bp150.2.6.1
* Mon Mar 11 2019 Marcus Rueckert <>
- bump the package only to 1.12 for distros where this actually
* Mon Mar 11 2019 Jeff Kowalczyk <>
- go1.12 (released 2019/02/25) includes changes in the implementation of the
  toolchain, runtime, and libraries. As always, the release maintains the Go 1
  promise of compatibility. Upstream expects almost all Go programs to continue
  to compile and run as before.
  * GO111MODULE=on enables module-aware operations outside of a module directory
  * GODEBUG=tls13=1 enables opt-in support for TLS 1.3 in the crypto/tls package
    per RFC 8446. Will be default in go1.13.
  * trace tool now supports plotting mutator utilization curves, including
    cross-references to the execution trace. These are useful for analyzing the
    impact of the garbage collector on application latency and throughput.
  * arm64 assembler platform register renamed from R18 to R18_PLATFORM
  * improvements to gc
  * race detector is now supported on linux/arm64
  * cgo is now supported on linux/ppc64
  * go1.12 is the last release that will support binary-only packages.
* Thu Jan 24 2019 Jeff Kowalczyk <>

* Sat Dec 15 2018 Jeff Kowalczyk <>
- go1.11.4 (released 2018/12/14) includes fixes to cgo, the compiler, linker,
  runtime, documentation, go command, and the net/http and go/types packages.
  It includes a fix to a bug introduced in Go 1.11.3 that broke go get for
  import path patterns containing "...". See the Go 1.11.4 milestone on our
  issue tracker for details.

  * go#28617 cmd/compile: panic during fuse with if true block containing a goto and a return
  * go#28586 cmd/compile: go binaries not working on exynos 64 bit CPUs
  * go#27395 cmd/cgo: typedef pointer arguments regression
  * go#27383 cmd/compile: failure on a function type alias
* Thu Dec 13 2018 Jeff Kowalczyk <>
- Update to Go 1.11.3 (released 2018/12/13). This includes fixes to
  the crypto/x509 and cmd/go packages. See the Go 1.11.3 milestone
  on upstream tracker for details:
  * bsc#1118897 CVE-2018-16873
    go#29230 cmd/go: remote command execution during "go get -u"

    go#29231 cmd/go: directory traversal in "go get" via curly braces in import paths
  * bsc#1118899 CVE-2018-16875
    go#29233 crypto/x509: CPU denial of service
  * Upstream is aware of a functionality regression in "go get" when
    executed in GOPATH mode on an import path pattern containing "..."
    (e.g., "go get"), when downloading
    packages not already present in the GOPATH workspace. This is go#29241
    and will be resolved in the next minor patch release go-1.11.4
* Tue Nov 13 2018 Aleksa Sarai <>
- Revert golang(API) removal since it turns out this breaks >= requires in
  certain cases. Instead we recommend that folks set Prefer: go in all of their
  projects. boo#1114209
* Sat Oct 06 2018 Jeff Kowalczyk <>

  * race detector detects race with close(chan) and len(chan)
- cmd/go:
  * 'go test -gcflags=all=-l' appears not to disable inlining

* Fri Sep 28 2018 Jeff Kowalczyk <>
- Fix stray 1.10 version reference preventing 1.11 only package solutions
* Wed Sep 26 2018 Jeff Kowalczyk <>
- Update to version 1.11:
  * Most of its changes are in the implementation of the toolchain,
    runtime, and libraries. As always, the release maintains the
    Go 1 promise of compatibility. We expect almost all Go programs
    to continue to compile and run as before.
  * For more details check:
- Use gcc8 instead of gcc7 for Factory/Tumbleweed.
- Update compiler-rt TSAN binary: the precompiled versions of
  LLVM's compiler-rt has updated to commit
  fe2c72c59aa7f4afa45e3f65a5d16a374b6cce26 in go1.11 source.
- Remove patch:
  * fix-sanitizer-build-against-latest-glibc.patch: upstream fixed.

- Ensure 'Provides: golang(API) = %{api_version}' is consistent
  to improve package resolution for common go dependency expressions
  'BuildRequires: golang(API) >= 1.x' and BuildRequires: go >= 1.x
  OBS projects that contain go code often have prjconf entries
  'Prefer: go' which selects go metapackage over go1.x packages.
  When go metapackage Provides: version is lower than go1.x versions,
  'Prefer: go' is not effective and build failures occur with errors
  unresolvable: have choice for golang(API) >= 1.13: go1.13 go1.14
  Edits and changelog Jeff Kowalczyk <>
  Refs boo#1172608
  * Unify '{version'} and '{short_version}' as '{api_version}' for
    'Provides: golang(API) = %{api_version}'
  * Use both 'BuildRequires: go%{api_version}' and 'Requires: go%{api_version}'
    to trigger build errors if go1.x is unavailable
  * Add aarch64 to supported systems for go-race via
    %define tsan_arch x86_64 aarch64
  * Add tsan_arch x86_64 aarch64 for suse_version >= 1500 and
    sle_version >= 150000, formerly conditional on suse_version >= 1315
  * Ensure %ifarch %{tsan_arch} always evaluates (nil does not work)
    via dummy tsan_arch on systems where go-race is not supported
