Refactor Go code using Comby
This batch change uses Sourcegraph's structural search and Comby to rewrite Go statements from
The statements are semantically equivalent, but the latter is clearer.
Since the replacements could require importing the
strconv package, it uses
goimports to update the list of imported packages in all
We recommend that use the latest version of Sourcegraph when working with Batch Changes and that you have a basic understanding of how to create batch specs and run them. See the following documents for more information:
Create the batch spec
Save the following batch spec YAML as

Create the batch change
In your terminal, run this command:
src batch preview -f sprintf-to-itoa.batch.yaml
Wait for it to run and compute the changes for each repository.
Open the preview URL that the command printed out.
Examine the preview. Confirm that the changesets are the ones you intended to track. If not, edit the batch spec and then rerun the command above.
Click the Apply button to create the batch change.
Feel free to then publish the changesets (i.e. create pull requests and merge requests) by modifying the
publishedattribute in the batch spec and re-running the
src batch previewcommand.
