Hi all, quick update from the Gradle front. I've played a bit with the
concept of a hook and I now have a working solution. Once the
implementation is cleaned up and fully tested I'll upload gradle and
gradle-debian-helper with the new mechanism. This should unlock the
upgrade of Gradle 4.4+, as well as ASM 6.1, OpenJFX 11, Spring 5.0...
i.e. the key packages left upgrading to complete the Java 11 transition.
