check whether it would be reasonable to call WiX from a Maven POM that does uses WINE if in
a Linux environment?  This might avoid having to checkin a .exe

1. The final thing we wanted to do is to convert all shell scripts which are getting called
inside management server(This does not include Agents as always they run on Linux Environments)
to python scripts. For now I identified the shell scripts those are getting called in side
management server and written python script(s) for them (Still need to write for seed system
template) and calling for only windows environemnt. In the next phase I will remove OS 
checks inside the code and will call python scripts only.
2. start.exe is generated out of start.bat so version control is on start.bar actually.
3. We will check on this.
