internal/lsp/cache: set GO111MODULE=auto in 1.16

1.16 wants to set GO111MODULE=on. There are, AFAIK, two differences
between "auto" and "on". First, if you're in a directory outside of GOPATH
and with no go.mod, "on" will run in module mode with GOMOD=os.DevNull.
I don't think we care very much about that. Second, if you're in GOPATH
with no go.mod, "on" will run in module mode, breaking GOPATH mode.

Breaking GOPATH mode may be desirable for the go command generally, but
for gopls I think it will lead to an unnecessarily bad user experience.
Users will find out when they do their first build or test; there's IMO
no need to also break their editor.

Flip the default back to "auto".

Go Tools

This subrepository holds the source for various packages and tools that support the Go programming language.

Some of the tools, godoc and vet for example, are included in binary Go distributions.

Others, including the Go guru and the test coverage tool, can be fetched with go get.

Packages include a type-checker for Go and an implementation of the Static Single Assignment form (SSA) representation for Go programs.


The easiest way to install is to run go get -u You can also manually git clone the repository to $GOPATH/src/
