Detailed Description

Rebase of Golang package to upcoming version 1.15 in Fedora 33. Golang 1.15 is schedule to be released in August 2020. Due to current nature and state of Go packages, rebuild of dependent package will be required to pick up the changes.

  • Other developers: Fix possible issues, with help from golang maintainers.
  • Release engineering: Rebuild of dependent packages as part of planned mass-rebuild. Tracking ticket to be opened.

Omitted due to the number of packages listed ~1300.

Not all of listed require re-build as they might not ship binaries and/or do not use golang compiler during build, but only use Go rpm macros that pull it in to every build root.
