Hey team! Does the Software Defined Assets API support cross-repo dependencies? • i.e. Could a job B defined in repo B have assets that are downstream of assets defined in job A in repo A? ◦ In this example, we are using OSS Dagster following the Helm deployment referenced in these Docs. ◦ What if repos A and B live under different User Code Deployments? • Are you able to reference an asset in another repo by the asset key? • Within Dagit, can you visualize cross-repo dependencies in the Global Asset Lineage view? I've seen https://docs.dagster.io/concepts/assets/software-defined-assets#defining-external-asset-dependencies, but wanted to clarify on some of the nuances above

the answer to all your questions is "yes",
SourceAsset
does exactly that. If another repo defines an actual asset with the same key, they will be mapped to a single asset.
