Let me go ahead and copy the 7.5.1804 tree into vault. then you can add that repo to your yum config

OK .. I kicked off the copy. In about an hour or so .. os/x86_64/ (updates, extras, etc.) will populate in http://vault.centos.org/centos/7.5.1804/

You can use it from there as long as you like.

yum --releasever=7.5.1804 install golang
The correct syntax would be yum install golang --enablerepo=C7.5.1804-base

That repository is defined in /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Vault.repo. Note that the above command does not work yet because the copying to vault is still being done, but that should complete in a few hours.

Edit: Works now.

I ran into this one myself today. Does anyone know if there any plans for the go-toolset packages to be available in CentOS?

You mean like the Go toolset 7 provided by the Software Collections SIG?

Thanks a lot hughesjr for taking the time to explain. I completely understand that it's not your decision and you had to react to a change made by my employer that just made my work and yours harder :-) (I have a package in CBS that needs golang...).
