Cache some images

Depending on your workflow with minikube, you may re-create a VM from time to time (or quite a lot). In this case, you may want to speed the process up a bit.

First, you need a recent minikube version, a.k.a. v0.29.0 at least — adding image to cache with v0.28.1 is bugged and doesn’t work.

Then, it’s pretty simple and it works even if a minikube VM doesn’t work — in that case images will be loaded when doing a minikube start.

minikube cache add docker.io/library/ubuntu:18.04
# […]
minikube cache add docker.io/prom/statsd-export:v0.6.0

There is some shortcomings still, as for now, it’s not possible to download digest image.
