Related to #245, I note that my build times are dominated by package installation and compilation. A particular bad example is:
where by far most of the time is spent building libtapi and cctools, and a non-trivial time is spent on package installation.
I would love for a way to mark a spot where the
real work begins, so work by tasks before that mark can be cached by builds.sr.ht.
There probably has to be a way to add a tag or ref to source checkouts so the cache knows that it can reuse a build snapshot.
