Small text file you can post here, read
Go links statically by default, and yay is no exception, therefore its executable has no runtime dependencies.
In simple human language , in AUR package, they use
go as a dependency for building the package only, meaning it is not needed after the package is built.
Chaotic-aur packages are already built, so there is no need for
go to install or run
