Subject Re: Gradle Wrapper
Date Wed, 15 Apr 2015 19:47:13 GMT

as far as I know there is no policy that prevent to include binaries (e.g. jar) for external
products, as long as the license is compatible (and Gradle license is definitely compatible
being ASL 2.0) in the source tree or in the source release.
