testing: document that "testdata" is idiomatic and special #14715
What version of Go are you using (go version)?
What operating system and processor architecture are you using (go env)?
What did you do?
What did you expect to see?
What did you see instead?
I prepared a CL that does exactly what @robpike proposes above, changing the output of "go help test".
But rereading the original poster's request, it seems like he expected to see something in "go doc testing" (and on the web at golang.org/pkg/testing of course).
So, @robpike take the CL if you want it. Or if you misspoke and what you wanted was a comment in the testing package instead, just ask and I'll do it instead.
