The `classpath` property is mapped to `sourceSets.main.runtimeClasspath + jar.outputs.files`. It is assumed that each file of this property is going to be present in the lib directory of the application distribution.

This makes adding to the classpath awkward as it requires adding to the classpath property and ensuring that the file is present in the lib directory as two separate steps.

So, how do fixes happen? Can I make the fix and do a pull request?

Yes, providing a pull request with appropriate test coverage is the fastest way to get something of particular interest to you fixed.

You can use a custom template to fulfill the use case. The Javadocs provide an example.
