Subject [jira] [Commented] (RAT-163) Gradle Rat plugin
Date Fri, 19 Jun 2015 08:44:01 GMT


Paul Merlin commented on RAT-163:


I was not wondering about publication to Maven Central, it is indeed possible.
For now I only published it to the Gradle Plugin Portal:
If the Apache Creadur project accept the code donation I suspect it'll then need to be published
to the Apache Nexus repository and be included in Apache releases.

RAT (core/ant/maven) is built using Maven whereas the Gradle Plugin is built using, well,
So I was wondering how it could be included in RAT build to ease maintenance/releases.
Maybe using

But before putting effort on this I'd like to know what the Apache Creadur project think about

> 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.
