I've just set up a new machine and wanted to build Go and was surprised to see that 1.7.3 compilation always fail on a time test. My build procedure is as follows:

  • (My OS is Ubuntu Yakkety)
  • Download Go 1.7.3 for Linux amd64 and set it up as GOROOT-BOOTSTRAP
  • Clone the upstream Go repository
  • Checkout go1.7.3 (latest commit at 2f6557233c5a5c311547144c34b4045640ff9f71)
  • Run all.bash from the src folder

This results in:

--- FAIL: TestLoadFixed (0.00s)
	time_test.go:943: Now().In(loc).Zone() = "-01", -3600, want "GMT+1", -3600
FAIL	time	2.439s

Dup of #17276, fixed by c5434f2

You can ignore that test failure. It's caused by an updated tzdata that came out after that version of Go was released. It'll be fixed in Go 1.8.
