Using this repository with a wrapper
This repository does not contain a copy of the Gradle wrapper. There has been extensive discussions about this topic, however committing a binary file to a
VCS is simply considered bad practice.
If you prefer to use the wrapper, you can always generate it yourself with an installation of Gradle at hand:
gradle wrapper --gradle-version 5.2.1
If you do not have an installation of Gradle, you may use a workaround.
