Sorry, it took so long to reply. I have been traveling a lot lately. We use pkg-dmg. I believe you can, google "pkg-dmg mozilla", I know Thunderbird is using the setup. In our ant build.xml, we have something like this..

        <echo message="Creating ${}-${product.version}.dmg"/>
        <mkdir dir="${project.dist}"/>
        <exec executable="bin/pkg-dmg">
            <arg line="--source target/${}"/>
            <arg line="--target dist/${}-${product.version }.dmg"/>
            <arg line="--volname &quot;Penrose Studio ${product.version}&quot;"/>
            <arg line="--license target/LICENSE.txt"/>
            <arg line="--icon images/PenroseDMG.icns"/>
            <arg line="--mkdir /.background"/>
            <arg line="- -copy images/background.png:/.background/background.png"/>
            <arg line="--copy installer/DSStore:/.DS_Store"/>
            <arg line="--verbosity 2"/>

Oh, you may need to include pkg-dmg in your subversion. The file size is really small.  Hope this helps..

Hi Jim,

We're really interested by that!

Does this work on a machine that is not running OS X ?

Seelmann and PAM,

Penrose team uses an automated ant script to build the .dmg (mac) when
you run penrose build script.Let me know if you are thinking about
automating the .dmg binaries build for LDAP Studio.
