Introducing Public Design Specs
Gradle Build Tool is an open source project, but a lot of the design work has not been as visible as it could be. Internally, we use design specifications to collaborate on new Gradle features. To make our development process more open and transparent, our design specifications are publicly available via a Google Drive folder.
This is still a work-in-progress and new documents will be added over time. We welcome community members to take a look. You can comment and provide feedback on all documents still In-Progress. We plan to use these documents to help guide new community contributions. Feel free to link to these documents in GitHub or share them with others.
Along with the public roadmap, we hope opening up the behind-the-scenes work will provide more insight into our future plans.
To get alerts for any new file added to the Google Drive subscribe to the RSS feed or join the #design-spec slack channel.
