= Proposed Self Contained Change: Gradle 2.x =
Change owner(s): Mikolaj Izdebski <mizdebsk at redhat.com>
This change aims at making latest version of Gradle available in Fedora and
making it possible to easily build Fedora packages using Gradle.
== Detailed Description ==
Gradle  is a popular Java build automation tool, which can automate
building, testing, publishing, deployment and more of software packages or
other types of projects such as generated static websites, generated
documentation or indeed anything else.
This change brings latest upstream version of Gradle to Fedora, which enables
Fedora users to use Gradle to work with software projects.
This change also implements integration with software used for Java packaging
in Fedora (XMvn and Javapackages), which makes it possible to use standard
Fedora pagkaging techniques to build RPM packages with Gradle with all
features, such as automatic artifact installation or auto-requires/provides.
== Scope ==
* Proposal owners:
** Package latest Gradle 2.x
** Implement local Gradle resolver so that RPM packages can be built with
** Update Java Packaging HOWTO to include information about Gradle packaging
* Other developers:
** Maintainers of packages not built with Gradle and which upstreams are using
Gradle as build system can optionally update their packages to be built with
Gradle, but that's not absolutely required as existing ways of building Java
packages will continue to work.
* Release engineering: N/A
* Policies and guidelines: N/A
