Hello Cloudflare team,
This is just to let you know that our deployments sometimes take really long. We are using Node version 16, which seems to be pre-installed on most deployment machines, but some don’t seem to have it, and then the machines download and build it:
|09:04:23.708|Attempting node version '16.0.0' from .node-version| |09:04:26.468|Downloading and installing node v16.0.0...| |09:04:26.942|Downloading https://nodejs.org/dist/v16.0.0/node-v16.0.0-linux-x64.tar.xz...|
I usually cancel such builds when I see them because the one time I didn’t cancel it, the machine was installing Linux packages (not only Node 16) for at least 20 minutes.
Maybe this is the expected behavior, but in case it’s not, I just wanted to let you know.
EDIT: I misread: It’s always downloading the tar file. However, sometimes it just continues with the deployment and sometimes it installs all kinds of Linux packages.
