I have exactly the same issue! Cocoapods (we use the official Bitrise step) clones the repo each time and I recognized (using a simple script workflow) that before Cocoapods the folder
~/.cocoapods/repos is empty. In the past the cocoapods step took only 30sec due to caching but now, due to the clone it takes 7min. We use the Xcode 12.3 stack from Bitrise. I’m also sure that I have the project for the correct app since we have only one Did you guys take out the pre-installed pecs repo from the VM image or do I have issues in my Podfile?
