Awesome to hear. They've definitely helped me out a bunch!
What's this about pyright being supported now šŸ‘€
I'm delighted that @wide-midnight-78598 has joined the core maintainers team at last. His code and collaborative spirit have been equally impressive. Welcome, SJ!
Thanks @bitter-ability-32190 and thanks to my other Slacks wearing Pants'ers. As a new Maintainer, I'll do my best to not to go mad with power, but if history is any indication - that won't last long... ... ... ... Mwahahaha... err... [insert normal human laugh]

@high-yak-85899 By "experimental", bug riddled could be another term... https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/pull/17235 It's based off the NodeJS backend, and copies a lot of the
plugin - but there are still some missing features, and some pyright-centric quirks (https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/blob/27f9da90a864ef3de9651363a5f106a688732958/src/python/pants/backend/python/typecheck/pyright/rules.py#L113)
Awesome! Love it šŸ˜„!
Congrats SJ!
