The OpenACS Core Team has identified binary installers and ease of installation as one of its main goals.

Binary installers are not completely supported unless the maintainer documents the process they used to build the installer. We want to make it easy for someone else to step in if a maintainer stops maintaining the installers. So this is a criteria for full acceptance from the OCT.
