Re requiring go toolchain: yes absolutely we want to require go to build this. In fact according to the Arch AUR guidelines it is required to build from sources when sources are available. If people are too lazy to build they can use the -bin package variant instead (or build in a chroot so they don't have to pollute their host system, or use my user repo)

Re adoption without your consent: this package had been flagged OOD since last June or something like that. When you file an orphan request for a package that has been manually flagged for a long time (90 days I think) the request is automatically approved. Ones that haven't been flagged for so long require a 14 day wait period and a manual approval by a TU. I filled an orphan request because this was 6+ months out of date and it was instantly orphaned, so I adopted it. Also note I reposted the upstream binary variant you had here and already orphaned it, if you want to continue that feel free to adopt.

As a question (just curious, not a negative reflection at all), how were you able to adopt the package without my consent? Was it because I haven't updated the package in a while the system marked the package as orphaned? I could also just be mis-understanding the AUR package ownership system.

With that being said, I'm happy if you want to maintain this I'm just curious about the procedure there.

Do we really want users to have to pull in the entire go toolchain just to build this small package?

It seems a bit overkill, right?

This PKGBUILD now builds from sources.

This package has, till now, been incorrectly named. According to the packaging guidelines any package where the source is available but installation is from an upstream provided binary must be named -bin. I'm reposting the history of this repo as git-town-bin and (having just adopted this) plan to overhaul this package to build from sources. I am not really interested in the binary package and will probably orphan it after posting. Expect the next updates to this to build from sources.
