    Description

      We are running cordova behind a forced corporate proxy server. Therefore, the environment variables http_proxy and https_proxy are set accordingly. Unfortunately when gradle tries to download maven dependencies, these env settings are ignored (npm works fine though). To allow gradle to fetch the deps via the proxy, we created a plugin that adds a "gradle.properties" file to the platforms/android folder containing the proxy configuration (build-time plugin only, no influence on runtime behaviour).
      With cordova-android@<6.0.0, this procedure was okay. We added the platform, added the proxy-config-plugin and built the app, which made gradle download the deps via the proxy.
      Since android-gradle@6.0.0, the proxy-config-plugin cannot be added to the project since it triggers a "clean" which fails due to gradle beeing unable to fetch the dependencies (since the proxy config is missing).

      Is it possible to (temporarily) disable the "clean"-step when adding plugins? Alternatively: Is there another/better way to configure a proxy for gradle?

      Thanks for developing the amazing cordova!
