Gradle plugin resolution outage postmortem
We published the postmortem about the recent Gradle Plugin resolution outage, where we share how we are reducing the likelihood of future incidents like this by reducing Gradle Plugin Portal’s reliance on JCenter, and what are the options for build authors to isolate their infrastructure from such issues.
