It's probably worth asking whether browsing a source code tree is
something someone who isn't very computer literate will do often. My
guess is that browsing a source code tree assumes some sort of facility
with using a computer. If they're browsing the source tree to learn
more, then teaching them that '..' means "cd up the directory tree" is a
good opportunity to learn something new imo.

Also, '..' means go up a directory in windows batch and powershell too.

Thanks for getting back to me, and for Beagles! No worries at all.  I'm
using the go toolchain from the Fedora 33 stock repository, which is
1.15. I imagine it'll get an upgrade with the release of Fedora 34 in a
few weeks, and I can wait until then to update to the latest bits (I
don't do enough go programming to want to maintain my own version of the
toolchain).

Best,
Nate

Error building with go 1.15 2 months ago

From Nathan Guerin to ~chrisppy/beagles-discuss

Thanks for Beagles, been enjoying using it.

Just wanted to share this error I've encountered building the project:

```
➜  beagles git:(main) make
go build   -ldflags="-X 'main.Version=0.2.0'"  -o beagles
../../go/pkg/mod/git.sr.ht/~adnano/go-gemini@v0.1.22/fs.go:8:2: package io/fs is not in GOROOT (/usr/lib/golang/src/io/fs)
make: *** [Makefile:22: beagles] Error 1
```

I think this has to do with the gemini package. Looks like others have
encountered something similar in other packages, too, e.g.

[PATCH man.sr.ht v1] Update Fedora versions specifiers 4 months ago

From Nate Guerin to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-dev

Fedora Rawhide is now Fedora 34, and the current supported (by Fedora)
releases are Fedora 33 and 32. 31 and 30 are unsupported.
---
I emailed Timothée Floure a few days ago and mentioned that it appeared
the Fedora images had been updated but the documentation had not been.
He suggested I send a patch--here it is.

I removed Fedora 31/30 rather than just adding 34/33 because 31/30 are
unsupported by Fedora already. See:

Hey Drew,

Happy to. Quick Q: what's the -v2 here?
