We'll be in #webkit and happy to be helpful in any way we can.

I considered posting patches to remove *Chromium files yesterday
afternoon, but then abarth reminded me that the commit-queue currently
uses chromium-linux.  I spoke with rniwa at some length yesterday in
#webkit about transitioning the CQ to Mac, it sounded like it was
mostly a question of ordering hardware.

Relatedly, we're happy to turn down the Chromium EWS bots as soon as
that's desired.  Alan Cutter (alancutter) is our current administrator
of such, also in #webkit and happy to help (he's on Australia time).

Adam and Eric offered to do some of this cleanup, but I think it's healthier for people who will continue to be a part of WebKit to decide what gets cleaned up, and execute on the plan.
