Hey Andrus, 

I just logged into the jira. We have had a discussion in our java user group monthly meeting
this Saturday. I never worked with Gradle myself, but there are a few who did in JUG. I will
look at other tasks in the list you have given, and let u know. Or, may be I will learn and
take help of some of the people in JUG to take up the ones you listed below.

    Buddha (and others who wanted to join the fun) -- 
    As you see it is taking us a bit of time to get the JavaFX Modeler project setup. Though
we are getting there. If you feel like digging inside other parts of Cayenne in the meantime,
I posted a broad TODO list for the next release recently [1]. Perhaps you can give us a hand
on some of those tasks?
    A good candidate (if you work with Gradle at all) may be #10 - providing Gradle versions
of Cayenne tools: 
    * cgen - template-based class generator.
    * cdbimport - DB to ORM synchronization tool. 
    * cdbgen - ORM to DB generator tool.
    These tools work from the Modeler, and are also integrated into Ant and Maven [2]. The
Gradle option currently is to call the Ant tasks. We'd like to provide "Gradle-native" plugins
instead. There are a few options for writing those. We lean towards using Java (to isolate
us from the whole Groovy vs. Kotlin thing going on in the Gradle world).
    Other tasks from my list [1] are #6 and #7. They are isolated and mostly well-defined,
though will require a bit more discussion and delving into Cayenne runtime stack.
    So what do you think?
