Somewhat related: #28215 (website: Update "How to Write Go Code" with go modules). It's targeted Go1.13, since it's when modules will be on by default.

If you'd like better examples and documentation, I don't think calling the current ones a joke is the way forward. Software can be frustrating, but your issues aren't going to be productive if they read like rants.
Having said that, there are plenty of real-world examples out there to look at, such as:
