Application Packaging Framework/Best Practise

As an organisation, we are about start packaging and repackaging apps for deployment much more aggressively then previously.
As I am managing the tech. team that will complete this work I am looking for a straightforward framework or best practise to packaging that allows the team to all follow the same approach.

I am not looking for software specifically, but more for guidance on (for example)
standard documentation
versioning standards
storing packaged apps (folder structures for the repository etc)

If anyone could provide links to documents that may cover this it would be greatly appreciated.
thanks.

Here are a couple of links which may help too:

http://www.symantec.com/connect/articles/application-packaging-best-practices-windows-xp-introduction
http://www.symantec.com/connect/articles/application-packaging-best-practices-windows-xp-part-1

The info isn't bad - although I don't personally like the naming conventions but there are some good pointers in there - oh and of course this is geared up for WPS - a lot of the principals apply to other solutions though.

Hope it helps,
Rob.

That's very kind, but I am on a limited budget so am looking for freebie documentation.
Any ideas?

Reading this section reminded of a quote from Shaun Orpen who, at one time, was Product Manager (or some such) for MS Office. When asked what was the format of Office files, he replied "Mostly air." LOL
