Re: SPJ paper on Build Systems

Thanks again for sharing.
For anyone interested in the benefits of bazel, especially on language tooling that doesn't have build caches the way Go does, this paper does have some nice insight.
I was a little disappointed that container based systems, like drone and concourse, weren't brought up. The way container images are used to handle tasks is an interesting take.
I got a real kick out of the way Excel is discussed in the build sense to highlight dynamic capabilities in a build system.
I think it's only tangentially relevant to Helm because Helm is a package manager rather than a build tool. A comparison that looked at tools like apt, yum, chocolatey, brew, and so forth would be a more relevant to Helm. Not to say there aren't concepts described in the paper that are important. I just want to make sure we're all on the same page for Helm's scope.
Alexis,Thanks for sending that paper out. It was a fun read to start my day.
