Re: [eclipse-pmc] [CQ 4469] WebKit (Windows port) Version: latest (Sept. 20 nightly build)

One clarification to make here, though it's not really relevant to the discussion of WebKit on Windows, is that the use of WebKitGTK+ earlier this year was determined to be a "pre-req" case, not a "works-with".  This is because its use is required for providing stable SWT-NONE-style Browsers on Linux.  SWT-NONE-style Browsers need to reliably work, as there's no more-basic alternative Browser type to fall back to.

The first two paragraphs of the referenced bug report explain why WebKit on Windows is a "works-with" case.  IE is assumed to be available as a stable renderer on Windows for clients creating SWT-NONE-style Browsers.  But for clients wishing to try to use WebKit instead when running on Windows, they should be able to do so and then fall back to using IE as the renderer if WebKit is not available.

+1 for marking webkit-win as a "works-with" dependency.

We recently marked webkit-linux as "works-with" and SWT also works
With IE and xulrunner on Windows.
