The great news is that we don't have to have the straw man--we actually are building the real list (and you've hit several of them).

At the infra team meeting this week we talked through a few of these (mostly focused on the dependency management issues first), and we've started collecting notes on https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/golang-infra-issues-to-solve about the basic infra things that need to be figured out.
