Cache Swift Package Manager Dependencies Add via Xcode

Are there any suggestions for how to setup a reliable cache for Swift Package Manager dependencies that are managed directly in Xcode?

Tracking the lock file ( [appName] .xcodeproj/project.workspace/xcshareddata/swiftpm/Package.resolved) results in frequent build timeouts on Circle. However not tracking the lock file would be non-deterministic as to the version resolved.

Any suggestion would be appreciated as I have not been able to find a good method for cacheing the resolved dependencies as they seem to only be resolved within the DerivedData folder which isn’t easily/reliably shared.

Is switching to cocoapods an option?
