What we currently do is:
What I'm currently pushing for is to build the dependency cache from scratch from time to time (say weekly) and only install the missing modules (we don't add new dependencies every day after all). This would increase the resilience to changes in upstream and also allow to purge unused dependencies.
But maybe there's a better way to achieve the stated requirements?
