Does refresh versions slow down my build at all? Starting a new project and my team lead wants to go with buildSrc, but I think we should try refresh versions, but he says refresh versions would have some sort of build speed impact too.

The impact should be minimal, reading a few short text files and using Gradle APIs to force dependencies versions accordingly. Except when you add a dependency and it has to search in maven repositories what is the current version

Hardcoding versions in buildSrc will invalidate all incremental compilation caches (including normally unaffected modules) whenever you bump a single version. That's one of the reasons we made refreshVersions, so we, you included, don't get that penalty.

@louiscad cool. Any other known build issues in terms of perf? If not... seems like this is the solution we'll go for.
