CreateLionUser now available with InstaDMG1-6 r425

One inestimably valuable tool that you get free with InstaDMG is the createUser.pkg, found in /path/to/instadmg/AddOns/createUser. This tool helps automate new local user creation, allowing you to securely pre-setup local admin and/or standard users as part of your InstaDMG-created image or anywhere else you could use a package installer.

With the advent of the 10.7 Developer Previews, it was found (to considerable dismay) that this reliable tool had broken. Fortunately, Per Olofsson of the University of Gothenburg stepped up to the plate and created CreateLionUser.pkg, a Python-built rewrite of createUser.pkg. CreateLionUser is also now being distributed with InstaDMG as of InstaDMG1-6 r425 and is also found at /path/to/instadmg/AddOns/createUser.

For full configuration details and credits, see the CreateLionUser-README at http://code.google.com/p/instadmg/source/browse/trunk/AddOns/createUser/CreateLionUser-README.txt
