If I clone the Smack git repository (master is at 89ef465) and try to build the project as outlined here, the build fails with the message
$ gradle assemble FAILURE: Build failed with an exception. * Where: Build file '/home/dev/Smack/build.gradle' line: 439 * What went wrong: A problem occurred evaluating root project 'Smack'. > Could not get unknown property 'uploadArchives' for root project 'Smack' of type org.gradle.api.Project. * Try: > Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. > Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output. > Run with --scan to get full insights. * Get more help at https://help.gradle.org Deprecated Gradle features were used in this build, making it incompatible with Gradle 8.0. You can use '--warning-mode all' to show the individual deprecation warnings and determine if they come from your own scripts or plugins. See https://docs.gradle.org/7.3.1/userguide/command_line_interface.html#sec:command_line_warnings BUILD FAILED in 1s
If I comment out the offending line I get more errors this time apparently related to the
* Where: Build file '/home/dev/Smack/build.gradle' line: 446 * What went wrong: A problem occurred evaluating root project 'Smack'. > Failed to apply plugin class 'org.gradle.api.publish.plugins.PublishingPlugin'. > Cannot run Project.afterEvaluate(Action) when the project is already evaluated.
I’m using Gradle version 7.3.1.
