but in this case, is the issue that the code being built into pexes may not live under the path where pants is installed?
Yes, that's the issue afaict. That issue is solved if the build root sentinel in different from the pants executable. Seems like
pants.ini
is the natural choice in that case? IE: pretend heron-pants does not exist, but installing pants system wide does exist as a concept. In that world, having
pants
at the root of the repo be the sentinel is confusing since
pants
would already be a binary on the PATH.
