Thank you very much for working on this. I'll begin to test this new
upstream release in the next days.
Do you plan to upload to experimental if everything goes well?

I have the same question, maybe somebody else can comment on this?

I don't think this is going to work, there are too many changes
introduced since that milestone and AFAICR that version of Gradle only
worked with Groovy 1.7.
I'd work directly on debian/rules bootstrap target. I have never seen
a Gradle non-bootstrap build, upstream only provides that wrapper that
just downloads a Gradle binary distribution. It is for that reason I
build a private .deb from upstream and from there I build a sane
Debian package that can be build with itself (like a compiler I guess,
but with the difference they care about backward compatibility).

Cool, I'll wait for them or maybe I'll just try to rebuild everything
Thanks again for working on this.
