We’ve had a number of recent internal discussions about EPD during which the phrases “that won’t work on OS X 10.4” or “does upstream have PPC support?” came up quite often. For example, a recent discussion about the importance of relocatable EPD egg installs sputtered because we realized Mac OS X 10.4 doesn’t support RPATH settings in binary headers, which meant we’d have to do something special just for that platform.
Once we realized this commonality, we next wondered how important OS X 10.4 and PPC support actually is for the EPD user community. Thus the point of this blog post: to get some community input. This is your chance to speak up if you need OS X 10.4 and/or PPC support. I can’t promise that a single ‘yes’ will sway our decision making, but certainly the more people who speak up, the more likely we are to try to continue the support.
