Please point out if this already exists or if I was supposed to post this somewhere else.
As of now, the url to our internal repository has to be added to all projects and that’s gradually becoming unpleasant. I was wondering if a convenience method like
mavenInternal() would be convenient and improve usability.
How it may work:
mavenInternal() will return a predefined static url (decided by Gradle team) and each company can create an internal dns entry for that url to point to their internal repository.
Support for something like
mavenInternal('some-random-suffix-to-be-appended-to-the-static-url') might take it further by supporting multiple internal repository urls (for snapshots, etc.)
having to use the explicit url is a great example to illustrate the difference in convenience.
[I guess you would come up with a better name than `mavenInternal()` if you were to proceed at all ]
