Idiomatic Go

What is idiomatic Go? It's frequently asked, but doesn't have an easy answer. Part of the problem is that we are still figuring it out. This is partly because Go is a young language. As the language and community matures, so will the idioms.

Be aware that idioms are more like guidelines than rules. Working code is more important than idiomatic code. Since idioms are sort of a shared experience, something that is not idiomatic is not necessarily wrong.

Since there isn't a definitive answer, I have collected relevant references.
