x/vgo: git submodules are not downloaded #24094

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


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


What did you do?

:gthomas@redpath: ~/src/
$ vgo build -o /tmp/csvdump
vgo: resolving import ""
vgo: finding (latest)
vgo: adding v1.1.15-gopkgin-v2.1.15
../../../../../v/ fatal error: 'dpiImpl.h' file not found
#include "dpiImpl.h"
1 error generated.

One issue is that vgo resolves as v1.1.15-gopkgin-v2.1.15, even if I put v2.1.15 into the go.mod file,

another issue is that though it downloads goracle.v2, it does not download its odpi submodule.
Will submodules be supported, or should we find a workaround?
(Workaround: use go generate to download the submodule and rsync into another dir)
If possible, provide a recipe for reproducing the error.

I can confirm that copying the C source out from the submodule solves as a workaround.

Submodules will not be supported, sorry. That's getting back into the version control detail world that we're trying to get "go get" out of.

Just updated the title here to confirm this discussion is about git submodules not being supported. As distinct from vgo Go modules (and submodules).
