This should use the 'gradle.user.home' if it's set.

Comment by Radim Kubacki [ 03/Feb/14 ]

We could have it but Adam expressed his opinion in the review that only http://www.gradle.org/docs/current/javadoc/org/gradle/tooling/GradleConnector.html#useGradleUserHomeDir(java.io.File) should be used. This way it is simpler to deduce what will be used by tooling API client. OTOH it shift the responsibility of handling gradle.user.home system property of GRADLE_USER_HOME env var to client code. Do we want to close this now?

If we change out mind we can revert https://github.com/gradle/gradle/commit/3a8ca3e97f94646399c154b7a9efcb3e340e97b7

Let's leave this issue open. My objection was to making these magic properties part of the cross-version API by implementing the handling in tooling API consumer. We can honour the magic properties, but we need to implement it in version-spectific way, by having the provider version involved in some way.
