quick question regarding the pulumi providers. I see when I build the pulumi-aws provider it creates a binary,
~/pulumi/bin/pulumi-resource-aws
Does each provider (ie, gcp for example) create these? I can't find them installed on my system anywhere, so not sure how it works. Does pulumi itself shell out to these providers in some way?

Yes, that's correct. Pulumi installs providers to
~/.pulumi/plugins
.

awesome, so if I wanted to try using the terraform bridge, I'd need to drop the built binary into
~/.pulum/plugins
?

If you've built locally, things should just work.
(the plugin system searches
$PATH
before the
~/.pulumi/plugins
directory)

ah okay, I've set
PULUMI_ROOT
to something outside my path, so think that's why it's not working

@billowy-army-68599 it doesn’t shell out, it uses gRPC
