about half a year ago I started adding ccache to the proprietary toolchains
at my workplace. I met several challenges (difficult environments) but I
got so much help from Joel Rosdahl and others that they could be solved.
I'm so glad that I added it, it works so fine now and saves so much!

On my private machine I get around 50% cache hits and team mates have
similar values. But most effective is the shared cache on a build server
where Jenkins jobs and interactive shells share a ccache:

I hoped it would save, but that it would save that much I didn't expect. It
is just great!
This saves a lot of time, energy and even CO2. Thank you so much!
