Downloading cached images despite --nocache and delta updates disabled

When using balena push <appname> --nocache to deploy apps, with delta updates disabled in the app’s settings, is it intended behavior that it will still download the previously cached images before starting the build? Normally it wouldn’t matter, but I happen to have some large images and the cached image downloads add 5-10 minutes to every build process.

Hi. That flag is a bit confusing atm. All it does is instruct the builder to not use the cache, but the cache is still pulled. I’ve opened an internal ticket so we can reevaluate that behavior.

Thanks. Presumably it would be more efficient all around to skip the download step when --nocache is used - it will conserve bandwidth for the balena servers, and it will speed up the build process for developers.
