Subject Re: [jira] [Commented] (RAT-163) Gradle Rat plugin
Date Sun, 27 Sep 2015 18:03:20 GMT
Hi fellow devs,

maybe I'm still misunderstanding the problem, but shouldn't we thank
contributors instead of blaming them for our poor architecture and our
ancient usage of JDKs?!

> Would you be able to provide a patch, that removes the Gradle plugin out of the "apache-rat-project",
and into a separate subproject of Creadur? I think that would make more sense in the medium
term. Right now, the Gradle plugin is an obstacle for the development of the Rat core, because
we don't really control it.

There are projects that want to use RAT+gradle ... since gradle is not
as ancient it works with JDK7 only ....

Why should we separate the gradle-plugin as a result?
ANT, CLI and maven are not separated as well.

I'm in favour of upgrading RAT as a whole instead of telling people to
make new projects .... we are the maintainers of RAT and we want people
to use it; thus we should make it easy for all the coming incubating
projects to work with RAT instead of choosing one of the many working
alternatives outside of the ASF world.

If I'm still with JDK5 I wouldn't mind not being able to upgrade RAT or
to use it with gradle - JDK9 is coming .....

Just my 2ct
