How does it package? I am desperate for a WiX replacement. I have literally written my own package and deployment solution for our product (we are a software vendor, with a remote deployable solution). I'm curious what this builds to? Do you get an .msi that is bundled somehow?
It looks workflow based, and you use wfexecute against a .XAML file. Could this be packaged and shipped to a customer? What would be the needed items in a "setup" program for this type of thing?

In essence this out-of-band solution targets TSF2012 and is a reference solution for the guidance and the continuous pipeline book (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn449957.aspx). If you are targeting TFS2013 you should consider Release Management for Visual Studio 2013.
