Note that Alan Myrvold has been making steady progress making the release
process via Gradle a reality:
1) Creating a jenkins job which can run the quickstart validation against
nightly snapshots and also can be used for release candidates (
https://github.com/apache/beam/pull/4252)
2) Building a release candidate using Gradle (
https://github.com/apache/beam/pull/4812)

Also, Gradle is the tool that has been selected already and there was a
community discussion about what was needed for the migration to occur with
a clear set of criteria. Romain, it doesn't seem like we should ignore that
criteria or are you suggesting we change that criteria (if yes, how)?
