The problem with Gradle as far as I'm aware is that it's a moving
target. It insist on updating itself when you have an incompatible
version and versions tend to break compatibility a lot, with new
features added often, all of which makes impossible for a Linux
distribution to keep up realiably.

netcdf-java uses the Gradle build system, and is required to update

Now, I know that following our system, one must package Gradle first but
given the retirement comment, packaging and then maintaining it does not
appear a simple task, and for one dependency only, it seems overkill.
Is there perhaps a way of bypassing that somehow? For example, is there
a way to use good old Maven to build a Gradle based project?
