  • Do your linux systems have any sort of native packaging such as dpkg or rpms? Could you use that format? dpkg in particular (debian and ubuntu) is just a tarball inside a ar archive.
    • This is actually something that I didn't investigate - simply didn't come to mind. Anyway, now that you tell me, I definitively remember some post-install scripts being executed after the package installation... so it seems to cover the requirement I had in mind for the "deployable" script.

      The target system is SLES 10, while I work with debian and Mac OS X. debian probably has tools to produce rpm-s as well... Nice suggestion!
