Subject [jira] [Commented] (RAT-163) Gradle Rat plugin
Date Thu, 18 Jun 2015 17:30:01 GMT


Paul Merlin commented on RAT-163:

Hi all,

As part of ZEST-27 I reused the work [~davidzchen] did in SAMZA-285. Then I took time to polish
the code a bit, write tests and package it as a proper Gradle Plugin. I'd like to donate this
code to the Apache Creadur project, if interested.

For now the code sits on Github:
I published a version of the plugin to (under a non-apache namespace)
so one can test/use it easily.

I did not investigate if it is possible to build/publish gradle plugins using maven, so I
don't know if it could be possible to include that work in the `creadur-rat` code repo.

Tell me what you think

> A number of new Apache projects, such as Samza, are using Gradle. However, there currently
does not exist a Rat plugin for Gradle. The closest alternative, the Gradle License Plugin
( is not flexible enough compared to Rat
for use cases such as defining exclusion rules.
> I have created a preliminary Gradle Rat plugin as part of SAMZA-285 and would like to
clean it up and make it a proper Gradle Rat plugin.
