Oh, that’s not what I meant. I meant that there would be a separate package for each project’s schema(s). We could have a meta package that we build, too, but I was thinking of bundling them separately.

It feels like it would be easier to keep them in sync that way. It would let us gate on that being the case, for example, without having to stage commits in multiple repositories.
