Subject: [Caml-list] Is it possible to have a common download cache for serval opam installations

Dear Opam Team,

I am working on scripts to automatically setup a Cygwin MinGW cross based development environment for Coq developers on Windows and for testing these scripts I have to reinstall Cygwin and opam frequently. I wonder if I could spare the downloads by specifying a common download cache folder somewhere outside of my Cygwin and .opam folders. Is there an option for this or could I e.g. symlink the download folder somewhere or does opam keep and index of what is in the download cache folder so that sharing won't work?

Best regards,
