Up, We discussed to have a strong switch to gradle or rollback to maven around april to not be blocked by the build tool. I noticed gradle build rarely passes on PR and kind of blurry our vision - not sure why exactly. Also, PR don't always contain the gradle updates - generally dependencies+plugins are added in pom.xml AFAIK, so it seems the adoption is very slow to not say rejected.
What do we do about that? When do we drop the double build maintenance - whatever is picked?
