Re: Staging and Runtime Hooks Feature Narrative

Troy Topnik

I think many of the use cases *could* be dealt with by multi-buildpack support or in a forked buildpack which executes the desired commands. However, the point of the feature is to allow the addition of these commands to the staging process without having to create an additional buildpack or make modifications to an existing one.

In my experience, users who know the application framework they work with may not be that familiar with the buildpacks that deploy them (e.g. Java developers trying to figure out the Ruby code in the Java buildpack). This allows them to make small "one off" modifications for a particular application deployment.
