I’m not sure what conclusions you’re drawing here?  :-)

As you found, each entry in /var/guix/substitute/cache has a TTL,
including for negative lookups.  This is why one can observe different
behaviors on different machines: one machine can think the substitute is
unavailable (cached negative entry not yet expired), while the other got
a positive lookup soon after the substitute had been “baked” on the

TTLs vary.  For successful lookups, this is usually a long TTL (see
‘guix publish --ttl’).  For negative lookups, there are two cases: a
1h-or-so TTL for “absolute no”, and a 5mn TTL for
“substitute-being-baked no”.

On top of that, nginx on ci.guix.gnu.org might perform extra caching,
though we’d need to check the config.
