Basically took the September announcements (http://pantsbuild.github.io/announce_201409.html and linked [four]square posts), smooshed them together, took out the parts that weren't about "why pants?", and tidied up.

Since I don't tend to have conversations about "why Pants?", I dunno how well this text addresses typical follow-up questions. Maybe when I was removing text that didn't seem related to "why Pants?", I might have removed stuff that actually belongs in there. Here be guesswork.

    Although this feature list might be redundant with verbage elsewhere in the docs, a few other other bullet points I'd consider adding:

    • Extensible through plugins written in Python
    • Supports a distributed cache
    • An active developer community eager to integrate your improvements to Pants.

    These were primary selling points in Square deciding to use Pants.
