There's a very good chance we'll want to do something similar for the
official OpenStack CI jobs as well. We already go to extreme lengths to
pre-cache and locally mirror things which software would otherwise try
to retrieve from random parts of the Internet during setup for tests. If
your software retrieves files from 10 random places over the network,
the chances of your job failing because of one of them being offline is
multiplied by 10. As that number grows, so grows your lack of
Local mirrors are also used to control the version of software included in a build, so that builds can be repeatable independently of changes to external sources. Is this supported by bower?
