[forge-dev] Gradle Addon status update - Gradle project creation working :)

Hey Max,

I usually run it with Eclipse and first run of Gradle takes about 5
seconds, I think that Gradle caches build files and that's why it works
faster after that, but for every test new project is created so why it
always takes so much.

I think the solution for this may be installing forge.gradle in
user/.gradle directory, so it will compiled only once, which will result in
better test performance.

About forge.gradle, it is library adding non-standard functionality to
Gradle, which is used in Maven and project facets requires that, like
profiles, setting archive name and managed/direct dependency support. Also
it adds forgeOutput task which is used by addon to read effective project
model (evaluated by running Gradle). In future if Gradle tooling API
supports that we could remove it, but for now there is no better way to get
information about the Gradle project. You can find forge.gradle contents
