If this does not work please let me know. This is what I’ve used in the past and if it doesn’t
work I agree it needs to be fixed. I honestly haven’t tried making a hermetically sealed
build in a few years but last year worked on a project that did no network traversal aside
from using file-based repositories and it all worked fine.
