Newbie question again, I (now, thanks @clay) have Dagster and Dagit installed in a Python 3.7.9 venv on my local computer. I would like to use the example project project_fully_featured to explore with. I downloaded the project according to the docs and ran "pip install -e ." in the created my_project folder. I saw a handful of dependency conflict errors as pip was doing its work. If I try to start dagster, I get an error
UserWarning: Error loading repository location project_fully_featured:ValueError: None is not a valid IndirectSelection
I'm not great at reading stack traces but it seems to be failing to load assets. Can somebody point me in the right direction to iron this out?

hi @Jennifer Flanagan (Jenna)! I think this is stemming from a compatibility issue between dagster and dbt version 1.4 -- a fix is going out tomorrow, but I believe if you
pip install "dbt-core<1.4"
then you should be good until then

Well, that gave me the confidence to go install a variety of things at specific versions until pip said "no broken dependencies". 🙂 DBT was definitely one of the things I downgraded, and now the project starts at least. Thanks for the tip!
