I've managed to convince myself that we can claim the tests we have 
already run cover the installer version as well as the zip version 
since they include exactly the same jar files, directory structure, and 
configurations.  The only difference is in the config.xml and 
config.list files, which are changed to run the tck anyway.  I would 
prefer in the future that the Izpack stuff be run from a maven plugin 
and integrated in the build and work by unpacking or including the zip 
distribution, but am willing to use what we have for M5.  David Blevins 
is working on building an installer.  With luck it will be available 
shortly.

thanks
