My project is packaging kotlin 1.3.30 into Debian sid. I have broken the project into 3 phases.
-Translate necessary build files to groovy from kotlin dsl
-Downgrade gradle version to gradle 4.4.1 from 5.1
-Package the needed dependencies into debian and then make kotlin build from source.
In the first week I converted about 15 build files to groovy from kotlin dsl.
Once this phase is done I move on to downgrading the project build files to gradle 4.4.1.
I also maintain a blog here
which I plan on updating each week with major updates that week.
