UI observation: (it might just be me so engage the consultants to do human studies before making a decision) when I want a list of targets for my repo I type
pants targets ::
first. This gives me a list of target types. I then think or use the help to remember that the goal I want is
lists
. As needing a list of target types is less frequently needed then a list of targets, I would argue that
targets
is more appropriate for listing the targets in a build. Is there a perspective on this that I am missing?

Absolutely agreed. We’re soon deprecating
targets
in favor of
target-types
, in part for that reason. And in part because
targets
has much worse output than
target-types
, thanks for
target-types
using the new Target API
