proposal: context: new package for standard library · Issue #14660 · golang/go
This is done, so closing. Context lives in package context for now (maybe subject to change yet, but unlikely), and is used by net, net/http, net/http/httptrace, and os/exec for now. The database/sql changes to use Context didn't happen for 1.7.
