there's no logic in that, and especially with the introduction of this
new feature, which the Go community has awaited for so long, I think
it's a perfect way to blast your legs off. It's a bit like removing
Python 3 because there were so many Python2 versions already. Or how
about removing Python2 altogether, then?

Thank you for the pointer!

I strongly think that this decision very wrong and should be reversed.
If the RT absolutely insist on cutting down the number of Go versions, I
am not opposed to see eg. golang-1.11 go, however, as I don't see a
compelling case for having it. But others may disagree. In this way, I
fully agree with Eric on this matter.
