With live-helper, in the configuration file "common", you have a parameter :
# $LH_CACHE: control if downloaded packages should be cached
# (Default: enabled)
So downloaded package stay on your hard drive.
So when you create an image, if it need a package already in the cache, it
will not download it again !!
Only if a new version exist or you need a new package.
