@fast-nail-55400 is Pants client's remote caching still experimental in your opinion? It's been used by several orgs for over 5 Pants releases now. (Docs audit)
@fast-nail-55400 bump, thoughts?
maybe
--eager-fetch
would make a difference? Altho I imagine we'd still keep that as an option

Depends on what our opinion is of the user seeing “missing digest errors” if there was no eager fetch.

Iiuc to remove
--eager-fetch
we would need to implement "backtracking", so that shouldn't happen. But, I think we were envisioning we'd still have
--eager-fetch
as a performance toggle

my vote would be that it remains experimental until backtracking is available because not having eager fetch will result in having errors that appear “randomly”

and a stable remote cache support should never be generating such errors in my view
