You speak of auto-packaging for windows applications. Windows installers are so easy to create with InnoSetup, that it might not be worth doing that. How about I send you a sample innosetup file that could get put into some FAQ somewhere on the web site and we call it good.

I know nothing about InnoSetup ... but presumably if it was built into gnustep-make it would be even easier? If it's a case of creating an 'innosetup file' and running a program, I guess gnustep-make could do that for you.

For me, the ideal system would be to have 'make package' build the appropriate package for the platform it was run on... perhaps printing a message telling you where the package is and how to install it (or putting the package in a subdirectory with a README that tells you how to install it).
