It would, although that's js; so we have some work to do 1st.
They sure land-grabbed that domain!

They don't say anywhere that JS support is a criterion for inclusion. They just say "We chose these tools because of their usage or recognition in the Web development community." I think the way to (potentially) get in is for some web developers who use Pants to open an issue there and point out that (a) Pants is being used by webdev community and (b) Pants' fit on that feature chart is on par with or superior to Bazel's. They can decide what to do with that new knowledge, but I don't think we need to preemptively rule out Pants' eligibility for consideration.
@loud-stone-83419 @incalculable-yacht-75851 @clean-city-64472 would you be interested in opening an issue pointing to your experience of Pants wrt webdev? Gordon, your blog posts in particular lend concreteness to that.

b. Is decidedly not satisfied until we ship js support afaict @busy-vase-39202 I was looking at the matrix, and when they say "workspace" "project" or "package" they are always referring to js from what I read. So this site assumes js is your world, they don't even have to bother to qualify things afaict.
That's why I say this is a domian landgrab. It says monorepo on the tin, but you open it and its js monorepo fwict.
So, to compare favorably in the matrix, we definitely need js support 1st afaict.
