I have an app module and a lib module. I would like the lib module to be completely distinct from the app module.
Currently the lib module is responsible for defining the repositories and dependencies it uses. When I try to build the app project, which uses the lib module as a project dependency I get errors:
Could not resolve all files for configuration ':app:debugCompileClasspath' > Could not find com.google.android.gms:play-services-location:11.4.2.

If in my rootProject, I add the same repository definitions as in my lib project, but under the
allProjects configuration, the build succeeds. I don’t want to do this though as it couples the projects in a way that I don’t want. It also makes the lib project’s dependencies harder to change.
Here’s a sample project that I’ve narrowed this down to the barebones. I’ve been running
to perform the build.
