Release 1.0 installer tracking bug
1) IzPack is extremely slow when an installer is built for multiple OSs. I've alerted the IzPack team to the problem.
2) IzPack will not recognize the difference between mac and linux. I've also alerted the IzPack team to this problem.
Currently, there are 4 different packs for the base files. There is one pack called "Base" that builds an installer that will run on win, mac or linux. The installer is large, but can be used with a nightly build system.
The os dependent packs are currently commented out and will be used to target installers for a specific OS. This has the advantage of letting us have a smaller installer for each OS and we can bypass the slowness bug that seems to happen when you define packs for different OSs.
There is a note before the first pack in the install.xml file that details how this should work.
1) build the installers and get people to test them.
2) work with IzPack to get the bugs fixed.
