projects will have a project file that would name dependencies and include information like licences, versions, and so on - all normal stuff. But what language should the file use?

Looks like it's going to be . Definitely not a bad choice. Will probably be taking a fair bit of inspiration from Rust's cargo files (or whatever they're called I don't use Rust). All that design can come later though. For now, the project file's contents are going to be completely ignored. I'll just be using it as a reference for the wrapper program to find the project root and process the whole project tree.
