Sophia did some benchmarks and showed that using a conda-pack’d archive reduced CI setup time down to about 2 seconds instead of the 40 seconds it takes to install miniconda and switch out all the packages for the conda-forge ones: https://gitter.im/conda-forge/conda-forge.github.io?at=5c79a37dd2d62067b72a849d
Mike’s point was who owns the support for a conda-forge miniconda distro? https://gitter.im/conda-forge/conda-forge.github.io?at=5c7992a9e1446a6ebe6871d2
