Hello @enough-analyst-54434, sorry to bother, one of my coworkers is trying to use pants in his machine, but gets a weird permission error (no bug on my end with the same repo):

This happens when trying to install this package https://github.com/Sterblue/cocoapi, apparently it uses the python system to do a pep 517 install ?
Ah, this unfortunately doesn’t work yet but is very close to being fixed. Recently, John changed Pex to vendor Pip so that it has support for things like Pep 517/518. That’s in the Pex 2.x series Pants is still using Pex 1.x, but John’s #1 issue he’s been working on is upgrading Pants to 2.x
ah yes I know, I'm using pants
which uses
with vendored pip, before the reverse commit haha

Found the bug, it's not exactly related to pants I think, my coworker had a very messed installations of python and pants was using a version while pep 517/518 was using another for the build packages (probably I'm not sure)

Fixed it by removing the python that is discovered by pep 517/518

Awesome. John may ask you questions when he’s online to figure out if Pex needs to handle this case, but glad to hear it’s resolved!

The issue you hit in Pex 2.0.0 may have been fixed by https://github.com/pantsbuild/pex/pull/828 which is part of Pex 2.1.0. That PR dogfoods pex to run pip in an isolated environment: https://github.com/pantsbuild/pex/pull/828/files#diff-77bac56887c1a03806e247fe60c2024cR25
ah yes cool, any ETA for when it will be available in pants?
