Just testing out the latest RC and ran into a problem with an existing build. It seems that a change in the MavenPublish code requires that
is set BEFORE the
block is configured. Otherwise you receive the error:
* What went wrong: Execution failed for task ':publishPluginPublicationToMavenLocal'. > Failed to publish publication 'plugin' to repository 'MavenLocal' > Invalid publication 'plugin': groupId cannot be empty.
Workaround is to move the
group = 'some.group.name'
to before the publications are declared.
