Hi Michael,

thanks a lo for your work. One Question: shall we put the builds into
the app store?

It had crossed my mind, but knew we wouldn't qualify. The OS/X App Store (for the Desktop) still is restrictive with what software will be accepted. The big one is that GPL software is still excluded, but since we use X11 (I am hoping to change that), we wouldn't qualify because of requiring "optionally installed software". And until we migrate off X11 and integrate with Cocoa for the UI we likely would never qualify under current Mac Human Computer Interface guidelines.

  • Software that changes the native user interface elements or behaviors of Mac OS X.
  • Software that does not comply with the Apple Macintosh Human Interface Guidelines.
  • Software that is similar in look or function to current Apple products (e.g. Mac App Store, Finder, iTunes, iChat, etc).
  • Software similar to other software that is already released in the Mac App Store. Examples given: Adobe Illustrator and CorelDraw, Photoshop Lightroom & Apple Aperture, Cinema 4D and 3D Max, etc.
  • Software that contains or displays pornographic material.
  • Software that is or installs shared components (kernel extensions, browser plugins, QuickTime components, etc).
  • Software that provides content or services that expire.
  • Software that does not run on the currently shipping version of Mac OS.
  • Beta, demo, trial, or test versions of software.
  • Software that references trademarks unless the developer has explicit permission to use them
  • Software licensed only under the GPL (because the App Store Terms of Service impose additional restrictions incompatible with the GPL)[8][9]
  • Apps that use deprecated or optionally installed technologies. Examples given:
