Should the '.gradle' folder be removed from source control for the easy-installer?
The sources of the easy-installer contain the
.gradle subfolder which as far as I know is not meant to be added to source control.
By just executing gradle tasks, I end up with a lot of modified files in
modified: .gradle/4.10.2/fileContent/annotation-processors.bin modified: .gradle/4.10.2/fileContent/fileContent.lock modified: .gradle/4.10.2/fileHashes/fileHashes.bin modified: .gradle/4.10.2/fileHashes/fileHashes.lock modified: .gradle/4.10.2/fileHashes/resourceHashesCache.bin modified: .gradle/4.10.2/javaCompile/classAnalysis.bin modified: .gradle/4.10.2/javaCompile/jarAnalysis.bin modified: .gradle/4.10.2/javaCompile/javaCompile.lock modified: .gradle/4.10.2/javaCompile/taskHistory.bin modified: .gradle/4.10.2/taskHistory/taskHistory.bin modified: .gradle/4.10.2/taskHistory/taskHistory.lock modified: .gradle/buildOutputCleanup/buildOutputCleanup.lock modified: .gradle/buildOutputCleanup/outputFiles.bin
From what I understand, the
.gradle subfolder gets created and populated by using the gradle wrapper
gradlew automatically, so no need to add it to the sources.
It's not a big problem, but I always undo all changes in
.gradle before I commit relevant changes in order to not accidentally commit something there.
