I propose to simplify the packages.gradle in order to better support the new docker based CI .
So all the target-yum / target-apt tagets have been removed and a simple repository creation is done by gradle yum/apt which can be run after all packages have been done. Complexity of gradle is removed as a side effect.
In the CI the only thing to be done is to schedule a "gradle yum/apt" .
Maybe we have to discuss to remove the dependencies at all in order to generate anything if something failed before.
