missing-built-using-field-for-golang-package

The stanza for a Golang installation package in the debian/control file does not include a Built-Using field that contains the ${misc:Built-Using} substitution variable.

The dh-golang(1) build system provides the ${misc:Built-Using} variable. It is used when scheduling binNMUs.

Please add the following line to the relevant stanza:

Built-Using: ${misc:Built-Using}
