Anyone have any idea what the status of this bug is? Specifically,
when
it will be fixed and patches available to the public?



From the README:
2.5.2 An Install Directory bundle fails to maintain the directory
structure

If you create an Install Directory bundle that includes subdirectories

containing files, then install the bundle, all files are created in
the
location specified in the bundle configuration for the starting point
of
the parent directory. The intended directory structure is not
maintained.

Workaround: None.
