It was/should be available (for purchase?) from Adobe.

You need to buy your own certificate. I'm not sure the XPK works with
anything other than Verisign - you could ask on the xdk-list.
Thanks for the info. Does anyone have any clues on why Adobe do not have the Xtra Packaging Kit on their online stores, and make no mention of it anywhere? It seems like they have abandoned the idea of people publishing xtras (a sign of their unwillingness to continue supporting Director?).

A few people have asked about the Director Xtras Packaging Kit and I followed up
the question with Adobe.
The XPK was taken off the online store as Adobe transitioned Director and
Shockwave from a Macromedia product to Adobe. The transition to Adobe has taken
longer than expected because of things like neglect from Macromedia, old codebase,
new Operating Systems... From my understanding, once the new XDK is fully updated
to be compatible with all OS's, it will make its way back onto the site. This will
likely correspond to the release of the next version of Adobe Director 11.
Adobe should be giving some public info soon on Director 11.
