Pants Build Open Source Community Newsletter - Issue #3

Pants Build Open Source Community Newsletter - Issue #3
By Pantsbuild Team • Issue #3 • View online
2021 was a great year for the Pants project, thanks in no small part to your participation in the community. Thank you! To keep that momentum going, we’d like to kick off what is looking like an annual survey to help build Pants’ roadmap. Like last year, we’ll be kicking off two phases of surveying over the course of ~10 days where we:
  1. Gather all of the potential projects and ideas from the community
  2. Vote to help to prioritize the gathered ideas
Whether you are a past, present, or future Pants user, we’d love if you could take a minute to submit an idea or two for what the project needs most: Submit an idea!
Please submit as many ideas as you’d like! In about one week, we’ll triage the submissions, create Github issues for any that don’t have them, and kick off a second survey that will allow everyone to vote on how to prioritize all of the ideas from the first round.
Thanks in advance! We look forward to diving in to build what will help you to build!
