Please answer these questions before submitting your issue. Thanks!

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

go 1.10

Does this issue reproduce with the latest release?


What operating system and processor architecture are you using (go env)?


What did you do?

Daves-MacBook-Pro(~/src/ % cat go.mod
module ""

require (
        "" v6.0.0

What did you expect to see?

Build success (or at least fetching of the v6.0.0 tag) then probably blowing up with something else

What did you see instead?

Daves-MacBook-Pro(~/src/ % vgo build ./cmd/contour
vgo: errors parsing go.mod:
/Users/dfc/src/ invalid module: should be v1, not v6 (v6.0.0)

Possibly the same as #23977? If that bug is correct, only v1 and v2 should currently work.

For anyone interested. A quick workaround is to use the commit:

require (
        "" v0.0.0-20171206195300-78700dec6369ba22221b72770783300f143df150

Duplicate of #23977

There are many discussions on the inclusion of the /v_N_ component in the import path. There doesn't need to be another issue for the discussion to leak onto.
