Android build timeout at Task write Release Signing Config Versions


we are developing an Expo app within a pnpm workspace. We have node-linker=hoisted as suggested by expo-monorepo-example. While the iOS build and EAS Update works, we run into a timeout with every Android build. The last log that is printed is :app:writeReleaseSigningConfigVersions.

We are using the latest SDK, expo router and nativewind with a patch as suggested here. The configs are copied from the expo monorepo example repo, with the only difference that we do not build the workspace packages, but instead point to the TypeScript source and have metro transpile and bundle the code.


the build works locally, but not on EAS
