It would be nice to allow a packaged file, such as a .tar.gz file to be
decompressed by the installer (based on a flag)
upon installation. This would make it easy to build generic isntaller
builders which could take a .tar.gz file, and automatically
decompress it to the install directory:
This would automatically decompress the .tar.gz file as part of the
You could then use the <parseable /> element to parse and configure files
to be within that file.
Another alternative would be to allow a way to include the contents of an
entire directory, rather than just doing it file by file. I could at least
stuff to a temp directory, and include that in the installer.xml.
Any chance of this happening?
