I’m peeved

Gradle can fail due to left-over Emacs back up files

I'm seeing this failure in my build:

It seems to be due to a dangling file left behind by Emacs:


/Users/hlship/workspaces/annadale/nexus/database/db-metric/src/main/clojure/novate/db/metric:

I think Gradle should recognize this and ignore the file (a link to non-existent file) and, at most, emit a warning. Perhaps it should even handle this as a special case, to support Emacs users?
