The license holders would be the ones to answer this question - Paul,
Bret and Angrez.

Sounds good, I don't see us using an installer again.

http://jira.openqa.org/browse/WTR-131  I'd suggested moving it to
contrib a long time ago, it might be worth asking on the main list if
anyone uses it. As of now, it's definitely unsupported code.

Yes for everything with the possible exception of the
transform-results.xsl. There are a lot of CI related tasks in the rake
file as well, anyone vote on keeping or deleting these?

> 5) Looks like these files need to be updated:

These could be deleted as well, the whole process is different now and
much simpler. I suppose I could write a new watir_release doc, it's a
pretty trivial process now to push a release.
