Question that came up on the REAPI Working Group call earlier: What do we think of the part of the spec that makes output paths be relative to the working directory? cc @hundreds-father-404 @average-vr-56795
There is some push to make the spec be that output paths are relative to the input root, and not the working directory. I would agree with that. Thoughts?
(And I can’t recall off the top of my head what the current semantic in Pants is for it.)

I think we're implementing as relative to the input root

Strongly in favour (of changing it)

The spec'd semantics are weird

Especially since I misread the spec and got it wrong. :)

Does someone want to chime in with the Pants perspective: https://github.com/bazelbuild/remote-apis/pull/191
