One of the responses I got to my post on Simple Package Creator.app was this one from my colleague Per Olofsson.

I’ve used Packages for a while now, but I had no idea it could do this. Not only does it do a similar job to my tool, it’s more automated. To show how this works, I’ve made a video showing the process with Firefox 29.

The package produced at the end installs to /Applications and will have the following permissions:

Owner: root (read-write)

Group: admin (read-only)

Everyone: (read-only)

Thanks to Per for pointing this out and to St├ęphane Sudre for building this handy capability into Packages.
