The go command at least nominally supports five different version control systems: Git, Mercurial, Subversion, Fossil, and Bazaar. Of those, only three appear to be installed on the linux-amd64-longtest builder. That all but guarantees that regressions in support for the other two will not be detected by the builders.

The two missing tools are Fossil (provided by the fossil Debian package), and Bazaar (somewhat confusingly, now provided by the brz Debian package).

Change mentions this issue: cmd/go: do not check for a built binary in TestScript/mod_get_fossil

gopherbot pushed a commit that referenced this issue Oct 5, 2021
This test hasn't passed since CL 349997, but the failure was not
detected because the Go project's builders do not have a 'fossil'
binary installed (#48802).

For #43684
