+Next steps for pkg.go.dev
+31 Jan 2020
+In 2019, we launched [[https://go.dev][go.dev]], a new hub for Go
+As part of the site, we also launched [[https://pkg.go.dev][pkg.go.dev]], a
+central source of information about Go packages and modules. Like
+[[https://godoc.org][godoc.org]], pkg.go.dev serves Go
+documentation. However, it also understands modules and has information about
+past versions of a package!
+Throughout this year, we will be adding features to
+[[https://pkg.go.dev][pkg.go.dev]] to help our users better understand their
+dependencies and help them make better decisions around what libraries to
+* Redirecting godoc.org requests to pkg.go.dev
+To minimize confusion about which site to use, later this year we are planning
+to redirect traffic from [[https://godoc.org][godoc.org]] to the corresponding
+page on [[https://pkg.go.dev][pkg.go.dev]]. We need your help to ensure that
+pkg.go.dev addresses all of our users needs. We encourage everyone to begin
+using pkg.go.dev today for all of their needs and provide feedback.
+Your feedback will inform our transition plan, with the goal of making
+[[https://pkg.go.dev][pkg.go.dev]] our primary source of information and
+documentation for packages and modules. We’re sure there are things that you
+want to see on pkg.go.dev, and we want to hear from you
+about what those features are!
+You can share your feedback with us on these channels:
+- Post on the [[https://golang.org/s/discovery-feedback][Go issue tracker]].
+- Email [[mailto:email@example.com][firstname.lastname@example.org]].
+- Click “Share Feedback” or “Report an Issue” in the go.dev footer.
+As part of this transition, we will also be discussing plans for API access to
+[[https://pkg.go.dev][pkg.go.dev]]. We will be posting updates on
+[[https://golang.org/s/discovery-updates][Go issue 33654]].
+* Frequently asked questions
+Since our launch in November, we’ve received tons of great feedback about
+[[https://pkg.go.dev][pkg.go.dev]] from Go users. For the remainder of this post, we thought it would
+be helpful to answer some frequently asked questions.
+** My package doesn’t show up on pkg.go.dev! How do I add it?
+We monitor the [[https://index.golang.org/index][Go Module Index]] regularly for
+new packages to add to [[https://pkg.go.dev][pkg.go.dev]]. If you don’t see a
+package on pkg.go.dev, you can add it by fetching the module version from
+[[https://go.dev/about][go.dev/about]] for instructions.
+** My package has license restrictions. What’s wrong with it?
+We understand it can be a frustrating experience to not be able to see the
+package you want in its entirety on [[https://pkg.go.dev][pkg.go.dev]]. We
+appreciate your patience as we improve our license detection algorithm.
+Since our launch in November, we've made the following improvements:
+- Updated our [[https://pkg.go.dev/license-policy][license policy]] to include the list of licenses that we detect and recognize
+- Worked with the [[https://github.com/google/licensecheck][licensecheck]] team to improve detection for copyright notices
+- Established a manual review process for special cases
+As always, our license policy is at
+[[https://pkg.go.dev/license-policy][pkg.go.dev/license-policy]]. If you are
+having issues, feel free to [[https://golang.org/x/discovery-feedback][file an issue on the Go issue tracker]], or email
+so that we can work with you directly!
+** Will pkg.go.dev be open-sourced so I can run it at work for my private code?
+We understand that corporations with private code want to run a documentation
+server that provides module support. We want to help meet that need, but we
+feel we don’t yet understand it as well as we need to.
+We’ve heard from users that running the [[https://godoc.org][godoc.org]] server
+is more complex than it should be, because it is designed for serving at public
+internet scale instead of just within a company. We believe the current
+[[https://pkg.go.dev][pkg.go.dev]] server would have the same problem.
+We think a new server is more likely to be the right answer for use with
+private code, instead of exposing every company to the complexity of running
+the internet-scale [[https://pkg.go.dev][pkg.go.dev]] codebase. In addition to
+serving documentation, a new server could also serve information to
+If you want to run such a server, please fill out this
+to help us better understand your needs. This survey will be available until
+March 1st, 2020.
+We’re excited about the future of [[https://pkg.go.dev][pkg.go.dev]] in 2020,
+and we hope you are too! We look forward to hearing your feedback and working
+with the Go community on this transition.
