[GRADLE-2266] Provide ability to download dependencies without going through the local cache Created: 01/May/12 Updated: 10/Feb/17 Resolved: 10/Feb/17
The case I'm looking at is where there is a CI build that essentially does a kind of promotion process. It downloads a dependency, transforms it in someway and then uploads the new version. This is happening several times a day.
The dependency cache is blowing out in size very quickly. In this case, there's no use for it and bypassing it would save the disk space.
This feature may be moot if we provided a convenient & safe way to clean the cache.
