doc: cmd/go: some module docs are on swtch.com, not golang.org #27220
Please answer these questions before submitting your issue. Thanks!
What version of Go are you using (
Yes, but I cannot elaborate it all without going through everything.
There are some links I came across, mostly in the https://golang.org/cmd/go/ page
To my taste, I would prefer golang.org docs be self contained.
With full understanding it's not up to me; just would like to express the opinion that
It's not reasonable for us to refuse to link to any other site from golang.org. For example, https://golang.org/pkg/html/template/ links to rawgit.com. https://golang.org/pkg/archive/zip/ links to pkware.com. I'm sure there are many other examples.
That said, yes, the vgo information on swtch.com is Go-specific and could reasonably move to golang.org. Modules are currently an experimental facility. Let's revisit this when we are closer to the 1.12 release.
There are currently 3 links to https://research.swtch.com/ in the cmd/go page.
Only Modular code layout leans heavily on research.swtch.com saying -
All others just have supplemental material ponting to research.swtch.com.
@rsc - Do you have plans to move some of the modular code layout section inside golang.org ?
