Thank you for the pointer. jdeb cannot do gradle (see
https://github.com/tcurdt/jdeb/issues/132). But there is
gradle-ospackage-plugin from Netflix:
https://github.com/nebula-plugins/gradle-ospackage-plugin. Felix,
maybe this could worth a try?

In the context of JabRef, we also tried snap. It was a very hard
journey with many hours spent
(https://github.com/JabRef/jabref/pull/2345). Finally, we hit the
borders of build.snapcraft.io that it does not allow to use the gradle
wrapper, because it forbids downloading it. See
https://github.com/canonical-websites/build.snapcraft.io/issues/918

So, we surely will also try the gradle-ospackage-plugin in parallel to
work on a full Debian package (see
https://github.com/koppor/jabref/issues/135).

Cheers,

Oliver
