#29068 closed enhancement (fixed)

Automatically reload the grunt watch task when changes are made to Gruntfile.js

Description

By default, if Gruntfile.js is being watched, then changes to it will trigger the watch task to restart, and reload the Gruntfile.js changes https://github.com/gruntjs/grunt-contrib-watch#optionsreload

This is a convenient little developer helper for when making changes in Gruntfile.js and not having to manually restart the grunt watch task to test your changes.

Patch adds a config task to the watch task so that Gruntfile.js is watched.

This looks good and will make working on the Gruntfile easier.

Putting in Future Release to not clog the 4.0 report, but no reason this can't go in now.
