@ian.rees and @sgrogan, I plan to open a pull request, ideally tonight, for just the os-x packaging deltas as Ian requested and hold off on the .travis.yml changes for now because I am up to my neck with work stuff and knee deep in honey do's. The mac app packaging is low-risk as it has been tested over numerous travis-ci builds, won't impact the devs and, as Ian requested, enables a one-time 0.16 build from master that will have a commit # consistent with other platform builds on master.
As for the oldest build, I tried to bring up a 10.6 VM but was thwarted by Apple's licensing issues on 10.6 within VMs - they only allow it if the host is OS X server. In theory, once the OS X app packaging pull request is merged into the master repo, anyone running a version of OS X older than 10.9 should be able to make a 0.16 build on master.
I will continue my work on the unified travis config as a distinct and separate pull request so I have ample time to sufficiently test port caching (I think it should work) and allow time to solicit feedback by starting a "unified travis config" thread to hopefully get broader buy-in from the devs to avoid surprises.
Sound OK with y'all?
