The initial paper can be read here https://research.swtch.com/vgo.
The proposal can be found here https://github.com/golang/go/issues/24301.
The Go issue tracker is used to track bugs/feature requests. Issues should have the label
modules and titles starting with
cmd/go so that they can be automatically categorized. You can read the existing issues here.
Note: The reference implementation was named
vgo, but support for modules is being integrated into the
go command itself. The feature within the
go command is called “versioned Go modules” (or “modules” for short), not “vgo”.
Currently, module support is in active development in the main
go repository, with changes mirrored back to the
vgo repository. Module support still has some rough edges. You are encouraged to try it and give your feedback, share your experience with it, and contribute to it.
For any production workloads, use dep, or migrate to it if you have not done so already.
The proposal has been accepted and vgo was merged into the Go tree in version 1.11.
You will be able to experiment with the module workflow from Go 1.11 as it is included as an experiment in this release.
These are threads that have been created from the initial reference manifest:
