-----------------------------------------------------------

I know nothing about Gradle, so this is in no way an argument against supporting it. That
said, I've been using Maven for Java projects for many years and have been building all of
my company's Flex projects using Maven / FlexMojos for more than a year now. In general, the
larger the company, the slower they are to move on to new technologies, especially when that
technology is so fundamental as a build tool. Supporting something like Gradle before supporting
Maven sounds like a move that would alienate many existing users who already have a handle
on Maven and aren't interested in moving or don't have time to move to Gradle or some similar
alternative. Whether or not Gradle support comes eventually, official Maven support within
Apache Flex is a good move for the future of the project overall in that it will make things
easier for a large set of existing users.

Personally, official Maven support is the one thing I'm most looking forward to with the transition
to Apache. Velo has done a great job with FlexMojos, but it's way more than one man can handle.
I would love to see that code adopted, maintained, and improved by the growing Apache Flex
community.
