    --make-update-default-url : The default location to load the XML update information from.

    --no-cache : Do not use the pm-download caching (defaults to cache enabled).

    --no-clean : Leave temporary build directories in place instead of cleaning up after completion.

    --source : The base URL which provides project release history in XML. Defaults to https://updates.drupal.org/release-history.
