[GRADLE-409] There should be a task type for files that corrsponds to a Make target that isn't .PHONY (perhaps using MD5, timestamp, or some tunable function) Created: 19/Feb/09 Updated: 10/Feb/17 Resolved: 10/Feb/17
The createTask(...) api in Gradle creates what amounts to a .PHONY target in Gnu Make.
It would also be nice if there were a nice syntax for specifying how the dependsOn relationship
You could also imagine how there could be a need to plug in an arbitrary function,
The benefit of MD5 over time stamps is that it eliminates clock skew problems
Obviously, a file task should be allowed to depend on both file and non-file tasks.
It might be worth starting a discussion thread on the mailing list about this
