Automate Alpine Linux installation

I am trying to achieve unattended Alpine Linux installation. I went through the Alpine automatic installation guide via setup-alpine script, but when I follow this guide there are many manual interventions are needed during the installation! one during writing the root user name, another time when creating the answer file (setup-alpine -c answerfileName), editing the answer file, calling the actual installation command (setup-alpine -f answerfileName) and reset the root password. Is there any way to include the answer file inside the ISO image and select the root user by default before starting the installation and set its password as well after the installation is done (something similar to the kickstart file in the debian distros) ?
