Does anyone have insight into why src/python/pants/core/goals/tailor_test.py::test_tailor_rule_write_mode is intermittently failing in CI like this: https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/actions/runs/4585116571/jobs/8097072485

The failure is:
ParseError: Name 'my_fortran_lib' is not defined.
And regardless, this seems like the kind of error that should be deterministic one way or another.

Yeah, that's weird. Do you know how long it's been happening? If we can roughly bisect it

I suspect a race here…
Copy code
09:54:37.50 [INFO] external invalidation: cleared 0 and dirtied 0 nodes for: {"", "conflict", "conflict/BUILD"}
09:54:37.50 [DEBUG] Launching 1 roots (poll=false).
09:54:37.50 [DEBUG] computed 1 nodes in 0.000320 seconds. there are 2 total nodes.
09:54:37.51 [DEBUG] Launching 1 roots (poll=false).
09:54:37.51 [DEBUG] Starting: `tailor` goal
Iff the filechange notification gets delayed by enough ms to fire just after tailor has written the modified contents for
conflict/BUILD
and the goal is re-run that BUILD file will now hold the unknown target in it.
i.e. a patchy solve is to add a
time.sleep(0.5)
(or whatever time needed) between the
rule_runner.write_files
and the run goal rule call.
or less patchy, disable file watching..
Even though that alias is set:
it is set for tailor to use, but is it known to Pants for parsing BUILD files with?
