One more project lost for us thanks to gradle :(
There's no doubt, the adoption of Gradle has slowed down updates
until the packaging is complete. But, software is going to change,
that's just the nature of it. Nothing has been lost, we just have to
rise together to the new challenge. We could have said the same
thing about Maven builds before you all did the innovative work of
integrating that into rpmbuild.
Sadly to support Gradle new blood is needed as the current maintainers are having hard
time keeping Maven+friends up to date.
It's becoming very clear to me, though, that we need to get more
information out there (this list is as good as any) on the status of
the Gradle packaging. That will help everyone set schedules and
expectations better. Let's frame it as a challenge, not a problem.
