Hi,

I was trying to build from source with the source bundle, but it seems you can't generate the wrapper from a recent version of Gradle.
I have version 4.3.1, and when I try to launch gradle wrapper, to first create the appropriate wrapper, I get the following errors:

$ gradle wrapper


FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.


* Where:

Build file '/Users/glaforge/Downloads/groovy-2.6.0-alpha-2/build.gradle' line: 53


* What went wrong:

An exception occurred applying plugin request [id: 'com.gradle.build-scan', version: '1.6']

> Failed to apply plugin [id 'com.gradle.build-scan']

   > This version of Gradle requires version 1.8.0 of the build scan plugin or later.

     Please see https://gradle.com/scans/help/gradle-incompatible-plugin-version for more information.


* Try:

Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output.


* Get more help at https://help.gradle.org


Which might also be why Cédric committed a change related to the build scan plugin?
