What version of Go are you using (go version)?

go version go1.8.3 darwin/amd64

Does this issue reproduce with the latest release?


What did you do?

package main

func main() {

What did you expect to see?

package main

import ""

func main() {

What did you see instead?

It did not import the package.

After digging a bit, I found that it is coming from here and here.

goimports currently compares the last two components while removing the hyphens but should it handle underscores too ?
