[Xen-users] building from source: caching qemu-xen-dir into /tools

Xen Masters,


This below repo is used by ./Config.mk to populate via git clone:



I am not sure about the difference between the two, but 2) is the important 
repo if building from source, lately.

My main question:
If I run (independently from the build)
git clone git://xenbits.xen.org/qemu-xen-4.4-testing.git

and clone into a local folder. Can I zip that folder up and drop it
into ./tools in order to cache the qemu upstream? This is in an effort to
not create so much internet traffic, if I need to build 5 times over the day.

Will the Makefile script detect that the ./tools/qemu-xen-dir folder already 
exists and skip the download?
