The "buildSrc" feature doesn't play nice with Gradle's caching mechanism - any change to a file in the `buildSrc` directory invalidates the build cache. The solution is to just include the plugins using the `includeBuild` feature (the Gradle team is even thinking of making `buildSrc` an implicitly included build, see https://github.com/gradle/gradle/issues/2531).
