Do people compile their own version of the Go compiler?
I'm curious if anyone compiles their own version of the Go compiler, and what the process is like, how well-commented the Go compiler is, how easy it is to get it to compile, and so forth. I mean, is it as easy as compiling any other project?
I ask this because it seems like something that should be pretty simple, given that Go is self-hosting (written in Go), and usually large Go codebases are highly readable and pretty "standard". So it could be a source of inspiration as well as best practices, and seems like something that would be "easy" to compile. And maybe it's very, very well-commented.
Thanks for any information 🙂
