Thanks Damjan for the (as usual) great progress.

Yes, sure.

No, dependencies we temporarily download on a build machine are not 
affected by licensing issues.

Maybe an extra parameter --cache-dir=$DIR to bootstrap would work? This 
way we could setup a dedicated cache directory on the buildbots (even if 
we are doing a "clean build", there is really no point in re-downloading 
a file if the checksum matches).

At least we could have the VM restarted to make sure we don't carry 
stale processes around for months. Infra can for sure do it with minimal 
effort. And access to the dedicated IRC channel for giving instructions 
to buildbots might be useful too (I guess you know what I am talking 
about; if not, just ask and I can look it up).
