Is there any channel for #buck to discuss following things? There are companies adopting okbuck in their android build system https://stackshare.io/stackups/buck-vs-gradle.
1) Moving from Gradle to OkBuck and reasons for it.
2) General discussion around Buck build tool. (Rule based in Buck vs Task based in Gradle)
3) Okbuck with Kotlin projects given it is now 100% kotlin ready (KAPT works!)

1 sounds like offtopic for this slack and partially 2. But 3 is definitely related.
I think it’s good topic for a channel, don’t think that someone will against if you create it.
Also, there is more general #build-tools channel, maybe make sense to discuss buck there first

Ah! Didn’t notice #build-tools! That looks like a valid place to discuss all other build tools. Thanks!

Buck doesn't have complete Kotlin support. It doesn't support Kotlin multi-platform, Kotlin JS and Kotlin Native projects.

Even officially supported maven doesn't have all new Kotlin features available and get them with significant delay

Yes sorry @napperley I meant 100% Kotlin Android.

Maven support has always been 2nd priority with Kotlin. Gradle gets the most Kotlin support (incl for Kotlin multi-platform projects).
