cmd/go: go get dropping Windows proxy settings (WSL) #38610
What version of Go are you using (
I think we need a firmer answer on what the WSL proxy behavior is expected to be before we can pursue this as a Go bug. (To my knowledge, nobody on the Go team is an expert on WSL usage.)
However, note that the Go porting policy requires a maintainer and builder for each supported platform. We have builders for (and do support) many Linux systems in general, but since we do not have builders or specific maintainers for WSL (#17365), to the extent that WSL differs from other Linux environments we cannot in general support it. (This is similar to the current situation for QEMU; compare #1508.)
If you require Go-on-WSL support, you should either escalate those issues to the WSL developers (presumably at Microsoft?), or volunteer (or find some one to volunteer) to set up and maintain a WSL builder environment.
