Install a package via API

Is there a way to use one of the APIs to install a package into an ORG?

 

We currently use a Selenium Script to do this, but I'd rather use one of the APIs to perform the install.

No, there is no API to install an app. What is the use case? Is it to help automate testing?

We currently have over 250 customer that we need to update with a major release of our app. The Selenium script is error prone and slow. I'd like to find a better method to update everyone. The configuration of our roll-out is setting permissions via the Metadata API, but we need the package installed first.

We are working on a solution to this very problem.  Look for more in the next couple releases.

Thanks Andew, That's what I've heard. Something like the Patch Push? I'm looking forward to using it. We just need to do something now. Looks like we will need to stick with the Selenium script until then.
