Fedora 31 System-Wide Change proposal: Golang 1.13

<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/golang1.13" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/golang1.13">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/golang1.13</a>

== Summary ==
Rebase of Golang package to upcoming version 1.13 in Fedora 31,
including rebuild of all dependent packages(pre-release version of Go
will be used for rebuild, if released version will not be available at
the time of the mass rebuild).

== Detailed Description ==

Rebase of Golang package to upcoming version 1.13 in Fedora 31. Golang
1.13 is schedule to be released in Aug.
Due to current nature and state of Go packages, rebuild of dependent
package will be required to pick up the changes.

With this rebase we will slightly deviate from upstream default
config. By setting GOSUMDB=off and GOPROXY=direct, instead of them set
to the default Google's services(or any other provider). This will
still preserve the ability of users to set the nobs to value of their
liking. By setting this we will prevent unintended (personal)
information leaks. There will be no impact on users of the compiler.

== Benefit to Fedora ==

Staying closely behind upstream by providing latest release of golang,
which includes performance improvements and improvements in support
for currently supported platforms among other bug fixes and new
features. For complete list of changes see upstream change notes at
<a href="https://tip.golang.org/doc/go1.13" title="https://tip.golang.org/doc/go1.13">https://tip.golang.org/doc/go1.13</a> . In result Fedora will be providing
solid development platform for Go language.

== Scope ==
* Proposal owners: Rebase golang package in f31, help with resolving
possible issues found during package rebuilds.
* Other developers: fix possible issues with help from golang maintainers
* Release engineering: Rebuild of dependent packages as part of
planned mass-rebuild. <a href="https://pagure.io/releng/issue/8481" title="https://pagure.io/releng/issue/8481">https://pagure.io/releng/issue/8481</a>
