Interesting.. The CI systems I work with are either in-house to build
rather large Unreal Engine based projects, or cloud based ones to
build & test (in comparison) small projects like Boost C++ Libraries.
For the former the size & resources doesn't matter at the scale of
adding a command line option in a tool having an impact on anything.
As everything is pre-installed as it's impractical to do otherwise.
And as some parts of it run in a local network distributed compute
structure. For the cloud based ones, yes, most of the setup of OS and
tools is pre-imaged somehow. So I guess I'm trying to understand what
you mean by "fresh OS image". Does that mean you install an empty OS
and then fresh install tools and then build/test? Something else?
