I assume by "testing" the Mac installer, you mean running a wine-like program (Darwine), which is only possible with Intel-based Macs? Or am I missing something in the thread you linked?
Also, on the same note, I haven't been around here in a while... The latest FS2_Open build for mac would be 3.6.9 RC8, right? With the latest media-VPs being 3.6.8 Zeta...?
A couple more things... just some suggestions. These forums are really intimidating (finding your way around, and finding out where to get the things you need) unless you've been around here for a while. Just an idea, but it would be really awesome if you could sticky a topic that has the latest mac/linux build linked, as well as the latest recommended VPs.
I would volunteer to put up a mac-newbie installer guide here, but I just don't think I'd have the time to update it.
Anyways, thanks for your guys' hard work on all this stuff. Still a great game. (Can't wait for the BSG mod to be done
