Hmm... playing with the docker functionality again (massive progress for us!) one of the arguments we were passing was
--build-arg CONTAINER_GID={os.getgid()}
. (this was for a development container so that it ran as the existing user rather than as root or some fixed user ID). It's not clear how to do this with
extra_build_args
in pants (or generally, how to pass in a variable like that). I obviously can't
import os
to call `getgid`; I could pass it in as an env variable, but I can't see how to use env variables within a
BUILD
right now. Possible or not?
