net/http: imprecise description of the return values of HTTP serve functions #26267
What version of Go are you using (
I think "always" is a description of the "non-nil" quality of the error as opposed to a description of the "return" of the error. In other words, any error that is returned is guaranteed to be non-nil. It is probably not meant to guarantee that the function returns - I don't know if we can guarantee that any function in the standard library returns.
But perhaps there's a way to remove this ambiguity in a similarly concise fashion.
