Hello 👋 I'm an SRE at Aiven. We provide fully managed open source data infrastructure on a number of public clouds. We're investigating using pants to handle some things in our mono repo like which tests need to run and which rpm packages need to be rebuilt. I am exploring the rpm aspect

welcome, we're happy to help! @fresh-cat-90827 has been working on support for building deb packages, which I imagine shares some similarities

That's right. There is an experimental support for building Debian packages from a directory of files. I'm starting adding support to include PEX files and arbitrary artifacts really soon.

I just came across that! Definitely lots of overlap
