While browsing through the list of pending patches, I found the
following patch series related to Go and package management:


The first patch in the series,
http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/976322/, introduces:

+	  Glide is a tool for managing the _vendor_ directory within a Go
+	  package. This feature, first introduced in Go 1.5, allows each
+	  package to have a _vendor_ directory containing dependent
+	  packages for the project. These vendor packages can be
+	  installed by a tool (e.g. glide), similar to go get or they
+	  can be vendored and distributed with the package.

and it does a fair amount of changes in pkg-golang.mk.

How does this fit (or not) with the changes you're proposing ?
