Last time I looked (last year) there were options for doing just the fetch part of go get separate from the build part.

I'll definitely agree that these questions are important, and I don't have the answers yet (although I expect we will by the time any Golang code lands in Swift). We've already got the Consistent Testing Interface doc which talks about having tests, a coding style, and docs (amongst other things). Does a resolution about Golang being acceptable need to describe dependency management, build tooling, and CI?
I think it makes sense to start documenting the expected interface for
projects written in Go, for the same reason that we have the others, and
I don't think we would want to say "Go is fine" until we at least have a
start on that documentation -- otherwise we have a gap where projects
may do whatever they want, and we have to work to get them back into
