I just opened a GitHub Discussion I'd love for the community to chime in on, as it is quite pervasive to our modeling of targets and dependencies. https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/discussions/15847 TL;DR one "untyped" dependencies field is certain succinct and ideal, but is starting to show cracks under the weight of the unique use-cases we want to throw at it. So where do we go from here?

@hundreds-father-404 @witty-crayon-22786 @happy-kitchen-89482 this is the detour we'll need to take before the assets proposal can move forward, and is also what we discussed for our next step.

Is there any way to add examples (like, contrived real-life-ish use cases) of how this would look? I'm trying to envision this in a project, and am coming up blank (maybe because I haven't had my coffee today)

The little toy code-snippets are meant to help the brain-juices with examples, but are admittedly trim. I'm weary of drowning the meat of the prose in codeblocks 😕

I'm +1 to the general idea of
dependencies
having multiple named fields that make it more clear what's happening. I don't like right now how
dependencies
is unclear and not intuitive what will happen

Added my $0.02 CAD... After conversion to USD and rounded up - well, probably still my 2 cents

OK Last chance to add comments before I take the feedback and start work on a proposal
