release-1.2: update release-tools #378
This is the latest release. Updating is useful to ensure that we have all of the latest fixes and enhancements.
Some operations are sensitive to the version of Go that is used. In the past, formatting of source differed depending on the version. Right now it is the content of the vendor directory which changes when switch back and forth between 1.12 and 1.13. We don't want to impose a certain workflow on developers, like forcing all invocations of Go to run inside a container. If developers want that, they can set up their development environment accordingly. But we should warn about this aspect to raise awareness. "make" invocations which involve Go now compare against the projects Go version (specified in travis.yml) once at the beginning. This is only a warning because we don't know which future version will be compatible with the project. Vendor directory handling gets updated, too: verification is now a separate script (became too complex for make) and there is a corresponding "update-vendor.sh". In contrast to verification, updating vendor is not integrated into make and thus itself invokes the go version check.
