The first thing I do is checking the website, in this case 
lilypond.org<http://lilypond.org>. There is a section about reporting a bug. It 
says to check the bug list and if your bug isn't there, report it. That's what 
I did. It didn't say "search through years of mail archives". And, let's be 
honest, it is HARD to come to conclusions from a mail archive, especially when 
you weren't part of the discussion.

That discussion aside, it seems the Homebrew formula found here 
https://github.com/nwhetsell/homebrew-lilypond does work. It's fairly simple, 
but takes a while to run.

My suggestion would be to update the MacOS download page, and add Homebrew and 
Macports as preferred installation methods. I'd be happy to help updating that 
page, if someone can tell me where to start.

Macports should *not* be the preferred method of installing LilyPond on Mac OS; 
I believe most Mac users these days stay far away from it (I know I do).  I 
like Homebrew for some things, but I've generally found it awkward for 
installing things like LilyPond, which is why I created the downloadable .app 

Is there a problem with the .app bundles?  Why are we having this discussion 
right now?  I think I'm missing some context.

The problem is that there is not an .app bundle for 2.22.0.  The latest is 
2.20.0.  It would be nice to have .app bundles available for every release.  
And I don’t know how to make that happen.  That’s why I’m asking questions.
