go-toolset and Go 1.13

Posted on


I work on software that now requires Go 1.13 to build (due to use of Go plugins, Go modules and the need for the -trimpath flag in 1.13).

We have no issue building ourselves with a manual installation of Go, but some who use RHEL would like to use the provided go-toolset which is currently 1.11.6. This particularly affects the maintainer of a package in EPEL for our software.

I've heard a hint that a 1.13 version of go-toolset might be expected soon. I'm wondering if it's possible to confirm that?
