          Issue Type: Improvement

>From Bertrand :

IIUC the installer downloads a number of files (listed
in installer/src/sdk-installer-config.xml) and installs them on the user's
system.

Does it make the user aware that that's happening? IMO there should be a
confirmation somewhere, where the user is given the option of either

a) Reviewing the list of files that are going to be downloaded, and
accepting or rejecting the whole thing

b) Say "I don't care, go ahead".

My concern is that in terms of quality and security, we don't want Apache
software to mess with people's systems without letting them know beforehand.
