Progress

Thoughts
I started working on the Poncho app's documentation today and realized that I hadn't added any information about dependencies to the readme for the Pegacorn Project. Then I spent quite a while researching tools for dependency management in Golang. I landed on dep, but had trouble finding information about how someone cloning my repo from Github would install the dependencies outlined in my project's Gopkg.toml file. I ended up asking in a Golang Slack channel I'm a member of and got confirmation of the answer I suspected (end user would need to have dep installed and then run the dep ensure command).

I started work on installing dep, but ran into a couple of issues: 1. I got an error message that my project wasn't in my gopath, even though it was. I fixed this by moving my project to the src directory in my Gopath. 2. When attempting to use the dep ensure -add command to add dependencies to my Gopkg.toml file, I got the error message "all dirs contained build errors." This error persisted even when trying to install one dependency at a time with the command. I'll have to look more into this.
