Hi, Arun. Our guide for potential GSoC students
( takes you through getting
started with Xapian. There aren't any suitable bugs or enhancements
related to the Go bindings, because the proof of concept from Marius
Tibeica isn't merged, so there's nothing in a current version of
Xapian that supports go.

As well as Marius' proof of concept, there's some sample code which
demonstrates what the POC currently does. You'll have to make a decision
whether that is all a good foundation for the project, or if it's a
helpful guide to get started.

Hope this helps -- let us know if not!
