Great - I was about to write a thread like this :)

Designate is looking to move a single component of ours to Go - and we
were wondering what was the best way to do it.

The current policy does allow for the TC to bless different languages
on a case by case basis - do we need to go from just python and JS to
allowing all projects to use go, or should the TC approve (or
disapprove) the swift and designate requests?

I think the swift and designate changes might be a good test case to
see how the build / mirroring / packaging / artifact / library issues
shake out.
