[CentOS-devel] What is the preferred approach to get golang >= 1.9.4 in buildroots in the CBS?

It seems that the golang version (1.8) in the CentOS build (base?)
repository is not recent enough to build one of the Gluster components.
GlusterD2-5.0 needs golang >= 1.9.4.

There is a build of golang-1.10.2-1.el7 in the CBS, but that is only for
x86_64, and I would need a version that has ppc64le and aarch64 as well.

Early on, golang was included in CentOS Extras, is that a possible
location to keep a more recent version?
