Hi,

Im trying to get the build setup on my Mac, but its failing at the first instruction...

For brew tap freecad/freecad

brew tap freecad/freecad
Updating Homebrew...
==> Tapping freecad/freecad
Cloning into '/usr/local/Homebrew/Library/Taps/freecad/homebrew-freecad'...

Please report this issue to the freecad/freecad tap (not Homebrew/brew or Homebrew/core):

Error: Cannot tap freecad/freecad: invalid syntax in tap!

Using homebrew is completely broken in MacOS. You should build using Conda.
