I also stashed
<https://github.com/keeganwitt/groovy-windows-installer/commit/daa93765529d7fe6a07306867eaf5dff702cdda8>
the Confluence page
<http://docs.codehaus.org/display/GROOVY/Windows+NSIS-Installer> into a Docs
<https://github.com/keeganwitt/groovy-windows-installer/tree/master/Docs>
directory so we have it after Confluence is taken down.
