Hey, is there some recommended way to run a custom build of Pants? I need to add a patch for a specific use case that we have and I´m wondering if there exists an easy way to run a custom build of pants

If the patch is in pantsbuild/pants master branch then the current runner script at https://github.com/pantsbuild/setup/blob/gh-pages/pants can take a PANTS_SHA env var and do the right thing. Alternatively, if just for testing, you can run directly from pants sources in a sibling repo (I can post a script that will do that if that's helpful).
Is this just for testing, or is this a patch you want to deploy to your users?

@eager-librarian-15922 Is this custom thing something a "pants-plugin" could do instead of patching
