[GRADLE-3219] ~/.m2/settings.xml is parsed for every project in a multi-project Gradle build Created: 28/Dec/14  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

In a multi-project build `repositories` clause needs to be defined for every project - either with `allprojects` or via `init.gradle`. If the local Maven repo is defined as one of the repositories, the method `getLocalMavenRepository` of `DefaultLocalMavenRepositoryLocator` is called every time a new subproject is parsed. In case repositories are defined for the buildscript of subprojects as well, this method is called 2N times where N is the number of projects. Every time this method is called it parses the `~/.m2/settings.xml` file and checks whether there is an override of the default repository location.
Ideally should be done only once - no reason there should be N (or worse, 2N) instances of the repository object. This is true for every repository, but the initialization of the local repo is the most costly.
