Fix Go on Plan 9 or else
Go team member Brad Fitzpatrick has proposed dropping Plan 9 support for the Go. 1.3 release:
This is a discussion about dropping broken and unmaintained Go ports from the main tree once the Go 1.3 tree opens. Specifically, I propose deleting plan9 and dragonfly support. Neither has many users, nor are they running a builder at http://build.golang.org/. Both can be maintained by their respective communities out-of-tree. Once those communities have builders running and passing all tests, they can be considered for inclusion back in the tree. This is similar to the "tiny" runtime and NaCl support which were once in the tree but now exist only in the hg history.
The community has responded by setting up a Google Group and IRC channel to coordinate work on the port:
#go-plan9 on freenode
Edit: Plan 9 has been added to http://build.golang.org.
