Although I can't guarantee anything AND I definitely can't promise to 
continue to support this I may be able to dedicate some resources to 
looking into getting a Mac package together and maybe working with Tom 
to document how to do this moving forward (so it is easier for whoever 
takes it on long term).

Before looking for a resource to do this, it would be good to understand 
if AG on Mac is desired. We use it here, but are migrating away from 
using AG so it isn't critical for us. Thus I don't need Mac on AG but I 
might be able to find someone to contribute to the effort if it "isn't 
too much work"... 8-)
