As the Release Warden I am very torn in this situation. In the past there has been community backlash when we've announced a release and packages have been unavailable for a specific platform. They effectively feel like they're second class citizens. Knowing this, I really feel like I need to hold a hard line about not making any announcement. However, given that this is an open and community project, as well as at this point a substantial amount of time has passed, I'm putting it up to a vote.
This vote applies only to core contributors (devs, translators,& bug mavens) and will be open for 1 week.
Option 1: Do nothing until we can get proper packages for OSX. Option 2: Do not make announcements and quietly update links where possible. Option 3: Make announcements and apologize and explain why we have left out a group of our users.
1 is unacceptable in terms of delivering.
2 is likely to lead to confusions.
3 gets my vote. It _will_ lead to extra work, but among the three options it's the only way you can both deliver and stay in touch with the community.
How do you feel about this ~suv?
Voting for Option 3.
P.S. The Windows packages are not complete for 0.48.3.1 either: no zip|7z archives nor debug files. Are there plans to upload a second set of packages (including the installer) based on the current devlibs - before making an announcement? IIUC there have been a few changes since the first installer build for 0.48.3.1 was created in late February.
