Bug#683666: RFH: gradle -- Groovy based build system

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request assistance with maintaining the gradle package.

Java/JVM software projects are increasingly migrating from ant and maven to

Currently, I am the only maintainer of gradle and it is taking me too much
time to package new upstream releases. Because of that, I was unable to
upload a working release in time for wheezy and I had to ask for its removal.

I think we need a team to maintain this package properly and to be able to
include it in future releases. More and more software is going to depend
on gradle packages.

If there is anybody interested to help, please don't hesitate to contact me.

The package description is:
 Gradle is a build system written in Groovy. It uses Groovy
 also as the language for its build scripts. It has a powerful
 multi-project build support. It has a layer on top of Ivy
 that provides a build-by-convention integration for Ivy. It
 gives you always the choice between the flexibility of Ant
 and the convenience of a build-by-convention behavior.
