Allow commits with /nocache to not use the cache #2909

Pull request overview

  • If a commit message contains /nocache, then it will not use the existing cache.


From now on, a commit message containing /nocache will cause a CI run without the existing cache. Note that this does not refresh the cache, it just ignores the cache for that commit only. On the develop branch, it is recommended (for admins) to go to Secrets > CACHE_VERSION and change the value, after which you can go to Actions and "Restart this workflow". No new commit required here.

However, this does not work on PRs. That's what this PR is for. If any PR in the future is failing because of cache issues (which would only be if nltk_data was updated very recently), then an empty commit can be pushed with git commit --allow-empty -m "Restarting CI without cache: /nocache". This should cause a CI run without a cache.

I believe this works sufficiently. I'm going to try it out on #2908.
