I would like to use the kotlin-gradle-plugin at a company I work for, however, there are some rather strict limitations with regards to what we’re able to use. Kotlin itself is Apache 2.0 licensed, which means we can use it. All dependencies have to be available via the central maven repository as well, which gradle-api is not. You can see this here – gradle-api is listed as a dependency but clicking on it results in a 404.
So my questions are:
- Is this a closed source, proprietary dependency?
- If not, how is it licensed and where does the code live?
- Would it be possible to make it available via the central maven repository?
