Speeding up Github Actions

I have three workflows that start on issue_comment , the image downloading takes 11s and running the image takes 9s but the scheduling takes about 20 seconds.

So, there is significant delay (40 seconds) from the time I post a comment in a github issue/PR and to the time github actions responds to it. can we optimize/improve the speed here somehow?

the docker image is hosted in dockerhub, would be great if we could have some kind of imagePullPolicy which should enable us to cache images if the image was not modifid upstream.

Thanks for sharing details on the build times you’re seeing.

We’re working on building in caching for Actions. I don’t have an exact date of when it will be ready yet.

When you say caching do you mean caching images to avoid re-downloading or something else?
