Notes

The function caches the most recent 5 calls in an effort to ease the burden on the Fuel servers and to improve performance. To manually reset this cache call skbot.ignition.fuel.download_cache.clear(). You can further also this behavior by changing skbot.ignition.fuel.download_cache to a different cache instance. Check the cachetools docs for more information.
