Slightly off topic, but if artists are the target, then not having
OSX supported as a primary platform is embarrassing.
It's so important to the project that we consider it a blocker for the
1.0 release. At the hackfest in Pasadena we talked for a long time
about how to solve this problem, mostly through recruitment and expert
head hunting. We've all taken time to ask our network of friends and
other open source projects to find people, ideas, and work arounds for
getting inkscape on the Mac working.
If you're interested in this project, please join rocket chat's mac
channel to talk to other people using home brew and other issues to do
with building the DMG. Your testing would be invaluable.
Best Regards, Martin Owens
