Subject Re: Where to contribute examples for Golang?

Yup , but where? Is it there "a place"? 
I mean, contribute to the runtime under "/examples" or to the website somewhere or...

One problem (and personal frustration) of the openwhisk project is that is so vast in term
of repositories that unless someone knows and wait for the PR, your contribute go unnoticed.

I contributed ScalaTest tests for my runtime  to the main repository, as it was requested,
and my PR was closed because now they should be moved ... in the runtime.

But how? The runtime is go code, moving Scala Tests means to create a Scala infrastructure,
that in all honesty is not that simple (the scala testing code is quite a lot). So I fixed
my original "cram based" tests and contributed to the openwhisk repo as PR, as they are more
fit to the repo itself and functionally equivalent. They are still there waiting.

I am afraid that trying to provide those examples without agreeing "the receiver" would end
getting the same destiny of my other PR for tests... So please give directions. 

Where I have to submit the examples as a PR? Who will pick them up?

Some thoughts of the top, we should have:

- accessing function parameters,
- returning an http response form a webaction,
- decoding a base64 payload (webaction),
- working with context parameters in the environment
