The Go programming language is an open source project to make
programmers more productive. Go is expressive, concise, clean, and
efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs
that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its
novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction.
Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of
garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a
fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a
dynamically typed, interpreted language.
This package is a metapackage that, when installed, guarantees
that (most of) a full Go development environment is installed.

- Do not distribute un-built from source race detector runtime files and
recommend golang-race-detector-runtime instead (see Debian bug #807455).
- debian/source/lintian-overrides: silence some extra source-missing false
- Breaks/Replaces: older golang-golang-x-tools, not Conflicts, to ensure
smooth upgrades.
- Add d/patches/0001-s390x-port.patch from IBM's repo.
- Updates for s390x support.
