thinking about a pants motto "{fast, free, fun}: choose three" just to riff on bazel's incredibly annoying one but that would increase the twitter cultural imperialism to dangerous levels

Actually a tagline would be great. Like Rust now has “Empowering everyone to build reliable and efficient software.” When writing the blog, I wasn’t sure what language to use. I settled on “Pants is a build system to allow working with enormous monorepos that may use multiple languages and dozens of tools and dependencies. ”

Copy code
Pants is a build system designed for codebases that:

    Are large and/or growing rapidly.
    Consist of many subprojects that share a significant amount of code.
    Have complex dependencies on third-party libraries.
    Use a variety of languages, code generators and frameworks.
it's a bit lengthy

Right, which is what I riffed some things off of. Too long to say in one sentence though

The bazel one sounds like the sqlite one: " Small. Fast. Reliable. Choose any three."

Pants are context dependent. Sometimes they're togs.
