It would be nice to be able to write this:
compile group: "springframework.org", name: "spring-beans", version: 2.5.6
compile group: "springframework.org", name: "spring-test", version: 2.5.6
compile group: "springframework.org", name: "spring-whatever", version: 2.5.6

like this:
compile group: "springframework.org", name: ["spring-beans", "spring-test", "spring-whatever"], version: 2.5.6

or like this:
compile "springframework.org:[spring-beans, spring-test, spring-whatever]:2.5.6"

or some other syntax that would allow to omit the repetition of group and version.

This is a minor issue, and we can live happily without such short notations.

I'm not saying that this makes your issue obsolete. But with pure Groovy power you can do something like this:

compile([[name: 'spring-beans'], [name: 'spring-test']]*.plus(group: 'org.springframework', version: '2.5.6'))

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!

Solvable with Groovy.
