Ximian used to start the install process for Gnome by doing something 

  wget -dump http://...../install.sh | sh

Note that I don't care how you do thinks behind the scenes only
that it is one step to install and one to uninstall and the likely
hood of hosing anything else is zero.

It depends on whose time you want to spend.  There is your time
once, vs the time of all the individual people you asked to test

Since the existing release already works for me (with my small
change to get optimize to work), there is little motivation
to test things under development that require more work to get
going and back out of.  The lack of a point release also makes
it harder to reproduce things on multiple machines.
