Hi Prefect Community! I'm trying out the new deployment/storage with a basic helloworld project and the "prefect deployment build" hangs after creating the manifest. This is for an s3 storage block. Does anyone have insight?
Nm it just finished. It took quite a long time because it pushed my venv into s3. Is there a way to avoid this? Or a recommendation on handling the env? This seems more involved than deployments in the beta

Hi Alex, the easiest way to avoid that problem would be either: 1. Switching to conda which doesn't store site packages within your project 2. Changing the directory so that your venv is located in a separate dir than your Prefect project

we are exploring how we may improve this in the future

Hi! I'm experiencing this same issue. It's still hanging after 20 minutes, though. I assume that's longer than expected?

we'll add .prefectignore in a release today allowing you to omit files you don't want to get uploaded
