Any thoughts to automating Mac OS-X install like with Windows?

Are there any plans to automate the install of the Nuxeo platform, database and add-ons (e.g., Postgresql, Open Office, ImageMagick, and FFMPEG) on Mac OS-X? It's not difficult to install the additional products, and the configuration wizard is great for a quick and simple install, but manual steps increase the probability of configuration errors and can negatively impact initial impressions.

Thanks.

The plans were to automate the install independently (as much as possible) of the OS, with a tool such as IzPack. The lasts prototypes were made for Nuxeo 5.4.2, see DM JAR installer and DM APP zipped. It was not fully satisfying, especially on Windows. That's still a work in progress, even if mostly in standby right now.
Any contribution is welcome, here lives the source code: https://github.com/nuxeo/nuxeo-distribution-izpack
