Goals

  • package latest Gradle 2.x
  • implement local resolver so that packages can be built with Gradle
    • this includes Gradle itself
  • package older Gradle from 1.x line, if needed (optionall)
    • some projects won't compile with Gradle 2.x or even incompatible version from 1.x line

TODO

  • packaging
    • new packages
      • zinc (incremental Scala compiler)

Bootstrap plan

Plan for bootstrapping Gradle in Fedora.

People involved: Mikolaj Izdebski

Current state: done, Gradle is in Fedora 22+

Phase 1 (initial bootstrap)

Phase 2 (local mode)

  • implement local mode using XMvn
  • package all Gradle build dependencies in wrapper rpm
    • binaries taken from the Internet
    • XMvn metadata added
  • from now on:

Phase 3 (dependency refinement)

  • while wrapper rpm is not empty:
    • pick one artifact from wrapper rpm
    • if it is not yet available in fedora:
      • build it from source and package it as rpm
      • skip tests if there are too many missing test dependencies
      • add any missing build or test dependencies to wrapper rpm
    • rebuild Gradle and run tests to make sure everything keeps working
    • if there are build or test failures, debug them and create patches
  • get rid of wrapper rpm
  • from now on:
    • Gradle with all dependencies are free from prebuilt binaries
    • everything is patched to work with artifact versions available in Fedora

Phase 4 (push to Fedora)

  • request FPC bootstrap exception
  • for all new packages:
    • do review (licensing etc)
    • cleanup spec file
    • submit for review
    • someone else reviews the package
    • package is checked into Fedora git and built in Koji
  • from now on:
    • we have gradle in Fedora

Phase 5 (further improvements)

  • implement javapackages macros for Gradle
  • prepare packaging documentation
  • announce gradle availability
  • upstream patches
  • enable tests (if skipped)
