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.
