Just a general reminder: Not every company using Groovy has unrestricted internet access... :-)

Do folks using it really need it to be in the lib directory with all the other jars? Or could they just use Grapes/Grab?

If it's truly helpful, I can keep it.  I'm just wondering if it's overkill.

    I'd be inclined to keep GPars in the mix for now. It isn't
    actively maintained but is still very useful in its current form
    and I hope to put some time into it at some stage.

    Cheers, Paul.

        In addition to removing projects that are no longer developed
        from the Groovy Windows installer (Gpars, Gaelyk, Scriptom,
        EasyB, Gant, GMock), I'm considering removing the exe files
        from groovy-native-launcher
        <https://github.com/groovy/groovy-native-launcher>. These
        haven't been compiled in quite a while and are just another
        thing to maintain.  As I see it, there are two primary
        benefits these provide.

         1. Provide a way to create file associations so you can
            double click a Groovy file, or run myFile.groovy instead
            of groovy myFile.groovy.
         2. Hide the command window when launching GroovyConsole.

        For #2, I can work around this with a VBScript file (or
        NirCmd).  #1 doesn't have a good way to solve other than the
        current native binary solution since Launch4J doesn't support
        variable expansion
        <https://sourceforge.net/p/launch4j/bugs/162/>.  My question
        is, do many folks need this functionality? It's something I've
        never personally used.  Please weigh in with your thoughts.
