Contribution to the Go

I was going to contribute to the Go, I cloned the Go source code. However, in the master branch go version is 1.17. On my computer, 1.16 was installed. I could not upgrade to the 1.17 version (because it is not available on https://golang.org/dl/. What should I do? To contribute I have to write a test, can I clone the 1.16 version and make PR to that branch?

  1. Build Go 1.17 from source
  2. Write, build, tweak your fix/test
  3. Submit a PR!
