Intro to gb, a Project-based Build Tool for Go

In this talk Dave Cheney will talk about gb, a new build tool that uses a project-based approach to building, testing, and dependency management. The key idea to the approach is that we want to divide the repeatable builds via source vendoring, and this is important because it's vendoring without rewriting reports. gb is a Set of rewritable components, and you have a set of libraries that lets you build Go code directly. Its two main differences is that gb is not a wrapper around the go tool and it doesn't have to use $GOPATH.
