Here's what i keep in a repository to be able to deploy Grouper quickly
from apiBinary, ui and psp tar.gz (didn't try grouper Installer yet) :

grouper.apiBinary :
/conf/* (including psp config)
/bin/ (jvm options)

grouper.ui :

For Jasig CAS authentication


So, even if there seems to be a lot of directories, customization files
are quite limited.
