Bug Description

I'm trying to make a snap for hashicorp's vault.

This is the error I'm getting:

env GOPATH=/home/elopio/workspace/canonical/snaps/vault/parts/vault/go go get -t -d ./vault.git/...
can't load package: package vault.git: code in directory /home/elopio/workspace/canonical/snaps/vault/parts/vault/go/src/vault.git expects import ""
Command '['/bin/sh', '/tmp/tmpwyqwm_y3', 'env',
'go', 'get', '-t', '-d', './vault.git/...']' returned non-zero exit
status 1

This is the snapcraft.yaml I'm using:

name: vault-elopio
version: snap0.1
summary: Vault is a tool for securely accessing secrets.
description: bla

    command: bin/vault
    plugs: [network, network-bind]

    plugin: go


 * Some go projects can't be easily build.

 * The workaround is hard to find, it should be clearer what to do for these projects.

[Test Case]

 * Create a snapcraft with the vault yaml from this bug.
 * Add the new go-importpath field.
 * Run snapcraft.
 * Verify that you get a usable snap.

[Regression Potential]

 * This could affect other go projects.

I can build the snap by changing the parts like this:

    plugin: go

Which is suboptimal because then I can only make the snap from the master branch. I would like to make the snap from the latest tag instead.

Tested in an up-to-date xenial system:
- Enabled the proposed archive
- updated snapcraft to 2.10
- Run snapcraft with the yaml from the bug description.
- It says: Please consider setting `go-importpath for the 'vault' part. Minor bug reported about the message:
- Added the go-importpath
- Run snapcraft again
- The snap was successfully generated.

I'm marking the verification as done.

Thanks Chris!
