local config
# let's try filtering with another tag
❯ ./pants --tag=unit filter tests/config_validation/test_verify_alert_rules.py
# oops! we need tag-regex
❯ ./pants filter --tag-regex='^unit$' tests/config_validation/test_verify_alert_rules.py

I really would love to help. But I've been trying to help with that ARM CI thing too and not making much progress because I tend to struggle to spend time coding when I'm off work.
