First, gradle requires a bootstrap process with an existing gradle
binary. I believe this is allowed in Fedora.
Second, I had some problems with the bootstrap producing invalid code,
so I came up with a two-stage bootstrap process which semms to work.
We should be able to bootstrap Gradle with any other build tool.
Personally I think Ant is better, because of its simplicity.
It is just a matter of executing the right steps (which different build
tools do with different efficiency.)
As always the issues that turn up are related to the dependencies. And
in Gradle's case the dependency chain going from Gradle -> Groovy ->
To me the exit criteria of having a working Gradle is seeing Hibernate 4
build. So if you can fire that up, then we have working bits. :-)
If it helps, here is a list of gradle BuildRequires so that you may see
any packages that aren't yet in Fedora. Note that some of these may be
optional if you do not need to package every plugin initially.
