I was about to ask the same thing. I didn't read the FAQ but I just thought that there might be nobody with a mac, and that's why we don't have any builds.

I tried the other day to build it to no avail. I got stuck at the "mypaint-brushes" package with this error:

configure: error: Package requirements (pygobject-2.0 >= 2.21.3) were not met:

Package 'libffi', required by 'pygobject-2.0', not found

Is it possible to create Docker images to simplify the build process? So the dependencies are already installed, and in a virtual machine instead of globally.

Thank you,

Hi all,

I've read in the FAQs that the guy with the Mac is a bit busy at the moment and so there is hardly any time left for creating the DMG. Maybe I could help here and do the build? I would just need some directions what is needed to compile and build the package.

thanks for your help. Perhaps look into the homebrew/macports packages.
