Comment (by eighthave):

 All of the libs need to be packaged in Debian first.  Vendoring is
 strongly discouraged and only allowed as a last resort, e.g. if a program
 needs a custom version of a lib where the maintainer of that lib has
 rejected the required patches.

 There are two relevant Debian teams for this:
 * Debian Go Packaging: https://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=pkg-go-
 * Debian Privacy Tools: https://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=pkg-

 I would email the Debian teams with questions and an outline of the work
 you want to do (with Debian you don't have to subscribe to post messages

 Debian teams have a standardized package template and workflow.  It is
 important to follow these, otherwise you will not receive maintenance work
 from the team.  Custom packaging methods are just too time consuming to
 maintain.  The Go Team has documentation too:

 Looks like they are on IRC too, so try them there.
