Golint is deprecated but we're suggesting people use it

I co-hosted a workshop the other day, and someone was directed to use golint in order to improve their docstrings.

When using golint, however, it says everywhere that this tool is deprecated and go use something else.

Has anyone spent any time thinking about linting tools lately, and have any suggestions about what direction to take things?

There was some discussion in the context of the Go Analyzer a while back: golint: golint is deprecated and frozen · Issue #16 · exercism/go-analyzer · GitHub
