x/build/cmd/tip: no longer shows version number in footer #34531
https://tip.golang.org/ used to show version info in its footer:
We lost that in the redesign.
I'm not against showing the version in the footer on https://tip.golang.org more visually. However, there are other ways of getting this information.
For this purpose, the /_tipstatus endpoint is more useful, because it shows the commit of Go and x/website. Both are important if one cares about knowing the exact version of the website that was deployed.
Additionally, the version information is still a part of the website source:
Finally, godoc.org used to scape the version from the footer, and had to be updated when the footer changed. See CL 193258. (It's only relevant once every 6 months when a major Go release is made, so it wasn't worth making a bigger change.)
