Perhaps the most difficult case ever for #Debian packagers: #Gradle They do all the things that make packaging a nightmare:
* Build the tool with itself* Circular dependencies: Gradle needs #Kotlin to build which needs Gradle to build...* Depend on snapshots to build releases, but then they don't keep a way to reproduce the snapshot releases https://github.com/gradle/gradle/issues/26516* Java-style bundling of all dependencies* Hidden proprietary depends https://github.com/gradle/gradle/issues/16439
thanks ebourg for keeping on!
