There are some common tasks floating around the web... such as:
task initProject(description: 'Initialize project directory structure.') << {
// Default package to be created in each src dir.
def defaultPackage = 'com/xxx/blog'

['java', 'groovy', 'resources'].each {

{ dir -> def newDir = new File(dir, defaultPackage) logger.info "Creating directory $newDir" // gradle -i shows this message. newDir.mkdirs() // Create dir. }


The gradle wrapper task probably falls into this category. These are tasks that run once and that's usually it. It would be nice if these were default tasks (no configuration in the build file)... with the ability to override in the config file.

We might bundle those in plugins (Wrapper Plugin, ...).

As announced on the Gradle blog we are planning to completely migrate issues from JIRA to GitHub.

We intend to prioritize issues that are actionable and impactful while working more closely with the community. Many of our JIRA issues are inactionable or irrelevant. We would like to request your help to ensure we can appropriately prioritize JIRA issues you’ve contributed to.

Please confirm that you still advocate for your JIRA issue before December 10th, 2016 by:

  • Checking that your issues contain requisite context, impact, behaviors, and examples as described in our published guidelines.
  • Leave a comment on the JIRA issue or open a new GitHub issue confirming that the above is complete.

We look forward to collaborating with you more closely on GitHub. Thank you for your contribution to Gradle!
