Gradle Goodness: Set a Project Description

We can use the description property of a Gradle project to describe the purpose of our project.

version = '1.0-bugfix'

description = """\
Simple Gradle project to show how we can
use the description property of a project.
------------------------------------------
Project version: ${version}
Gradle version: ${gradle.gradleVersion}
------------------------------------------
"""

When we invoke $ gradle projects we get to see our project description in the output.

$ gradle -q projects

Root project 'description' - Simple Gradle project to show how we can
use the description property of a project.
------------------------------------------
Project version: 1.0-bugfix
Gradle version: 0.9-rc-2
------------------------------------------

No sub-projects

To see a list of the tasks of a project, run gradle <project-path>:tasks
For example, try running gradle :tasks
