Go (the programming language) support

Hello everybody,

are there any existing projects or efforts in development that intend
to support Go in KDevelop beyond the syntax highlighting in Kate? A
quick Google search only shows a Github repository in which nothing
ever seems to have happened.[0]

It seems like Go should actually be quite accessible to add support
for, e.g. packages for parsing Go are provided as part of the standard
Go distribution. This could be leveraged with an approach similar to
gocode [1], where a daemon written in Go would do all the parsing and
communicate with the KDevelop process to answer definition-use and
code completion queries.
