There is no installer. You download the dmg (which is a disk image, like an iso), mount it (most browsers will do that automatically) and drag Gnucash.app to your /Applications folder. Then double click and away you go.
I could have the script that makes the "/opt/gnucash-foo" link also display the Readme somehow, maybe by making it a PDF so that it opens in Preview -- though gratuitously opening other apps seems a bit rude.
Anyway, the Readme *is* on the dmg, so the user can read it if s/he is so inclined. But Gnucash is a pretty big download (around 50MB), so I think that potential users should be able to read it before they commit to downloading.
