Which I think is great. The people who have the time and experience
and infrastructure for building and distributing binaries for OSX do
that for us, and they do a better job than we would do upstream where
we have very few people with time and expertise for that and we have
no infrastructure for producing and packaging binary builds. As an
upstream project we get to focus on making QEMU better because we
don't have our limited effort used on binary builds. Everybody wins.
