I've just start a Cloud project 
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_computing) in which I need to put 
GIS software on different nodes, to be used by decentral agencies for 
their historical maps. One of the targets is to provide a setup-path for 
the software. I'll make the documentation available as soon as I have a 
working solution (a month or so). It won't be the last word for every 
situation, but it could give people some pointers on how to organise 
things in a systematic way. Getting all dependencies right can be a bit
