I don’t do any development in Go lang. The only “Go dev” stuff I do is clone the Hugo repo and build it locally to try out new features and bug fixes.
I have seen that over time, a lot of garbage gets collected in the
~/go.apps/pkg/ directory e.g. multiple versions of the same package.
I tried searching online but the name of the language “go” makes it very difficult to search for what I need.
For example, I have these pkg versions on my disk:
The screenshot is from a tool called ncdu, from where I can delete directories after reviewing the disk usage. But I have noticed that Go has restricted the deletion of these packages by users. If I try to delete firstname.lastname@example.org but I get “Permission denied” error.
So… how do Go developers manage deletion of all the old packages? Is there a
go .. command that does that?
