Is it possible to add features to the migration plugin to use sub projects which might use other build management systems which you do not have the control to migrate them to work smoothly with Gradle.
Wrestling with build management issues is time wasted as this can be used in coding and real bug fixing. Adaptation of Graddle will be hampered as trying to champion the use of Graddle will create more issues than the ease of use it provides when there are other sub parts which use other build management like STB. Also it is worth while to consider Buildr also as it is JVM based.
Also another issue to tackle is if Graddle is the sub project and other parent branches are on another build management system. In case of Maven an auto generation of a POM file might be helpful. But don’t limit this just to Maven support.
