@FiloSottile requested issue #29591 to be considered for backport to the next 1.11 minor release.

Agreed, we should not. Depending on how many packages this will break, we should consider backporting it, too. It's true that it requires a server misconfiguration, but it breaks user expectations about not having to trust their network.

@gopherbot please open two backport issues.

Approving since this is a security issue. Please follow the instructions at to create the cherrypick CL.

The upstream issue #29591 has not been resolved yet, and it has been bumped up to Go 1.13 milestone, so no progress can be made here at this time.

Edit: That said, CL 156838 which resolves the upstream issue has a +2, just a R=Go1.13 label. Perhaps progress can be made here. I'll let people who worked on the fix decide. /cc @bcmills @rsc

I think we want to land the CL and give it a bit of soak time, then backport it.
