Stan, you omitted a pointer to the posting. I spent about half an hour
digging it up. It reported the problem triggering this report 8 days ago.
You can see in this issue that Christian Hitz provided a new tarball 5 days
ago. There has been a request to make his sources available in a manner
where this is not just a blind game of being in luck with picking a
suitable version of LilyPad and transferring it to GUB with lots of manual
work. There has been no reply apparently so far.
This is a total resource hog poking around blindly in the dark, making a
mockery of all release planning.
This issue is, at the moment, lying dormant. There is no owner, nothing
going forward on it, and its state of "Critical", correctly assigned for a
regression and/or failing components in a supported platform, is delaying a
stable release of LilyPond indefinitely.
As long as we have nobody declaring to take a reasonable amount of
responsibility for keeping OSX workable, there is no point in maintaining
the "supported platform" status. Because it does not mean that we support
OSX, but rather that we stop supporting anything else as well.
