Hi Jeremy,

I'd recommend asking PSPP to post a link to the bundles: it'd be better
to have direct links from PSPP to your project than secondary ones from me.

I can make a web page for the bundles.

If we can get your bundles working for all versions of the OS, that'd be
spectacular and makes my efforts unnecessary :-)

Would be nice, but it is not that simple. Technically the OSX bundles are based
on the macports version of pspp. So having pspp in macports is a
prerequisite for building the bundle. It would only be a simpler way of 
distribution and installation for those who have problems with macports.
The bundle will also not make pspp reachable via commandline.

I also have no plan to have older osx versions in virtual machines to build
and test the bundles for older osx versions. I have a macbook running El Capitan.

The bundles are build for the Quartz backend of gtk, so they do not use the X Server.
There are some differences in rendering. For example
the gtk quartz backend does not show the blue text in the syntax editor.

to build the bundle. This is based on gtk-mac-bundler. The
bundle is based on the quartz backend of gtk3, i.e. no XServer
is required. I provide the bundle here:

Using the bundle does not require to install macports or the X11 Server.

What do you think about promoting the bundle as alternative to
macports install via your pspp osx webpage:
