Golang 1.17

Summary

Rebase of Golang package to upcoming version 1.17 in Fedora 36, including the rebuild of all dependent packages(the pre-release version of Go will be used for the rebuild if released version will not be available at the time of the mass rebuild).

Owner

Current status

Detailed Description

Rebase of Golang package to upcoming version 1.17 in Fedora 36. Golang 1.17 is scheduled to be released in August 2021. Due to Go packages' current nature and state, the rebuild of dependent packages will be required.

Benefit to Fedora

Stay closely behind upstream by providing the latest release of Go, which includes improved support of the risc-v processor architecture and added support for aarch64 based darwin(macOS) machines, among other bug fixes, enhancements and new features. For a complete list of changes, see upstream change notes at https://tip.golang.org/doc/go1.17 . Therefore Fedora will be providing a reliable development platform for Go language and projects written in it.

Scope

  • Proposal owners: Rebase Golang package in Fedora 36, help resolve possible issues found during package rebuilds.
  • Other developers: Fix possible issues, with help from Golang maintainers.
  • Release engineering: Rebuild of dependent packages as part of planned mass-rebuild.
  • Policies and guidelines: N/A
  • Trademark approval: N/A

Upgrade/compatibility impact

None

How To Test

0.
a) Install golang 1.17 from rawhide and use it to build your application(s)/package(s).
b) Scratch build against rawhide.
1.
Your application/package built using golang 1.17 should work as expected.

User Experience

None

Dependencies

dnf repoquery -q  --releasever=rawhide --disablerepo='*' --qf='%{name}' --enablerepo=fedora-source --enablerepo=updates-source --enablerepo=updates-testing-source --archlist=src --whatrequires 'golang'

Omitted due to the number of packages listed ~1600.

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.

Contingency Plan

  • Contingency mechanism:Reverting to golang version 1.16.X if significant issues are discovered.
  • Contingency deadline: Beta Freeze(?)
  • Blocks release? No
  • Blocks product? No
