Hi Ian,

I just want to add something as well as answer some of your questions (with what I found via Google).

In [1] he specified more of the requirements for a CI on OSX in more detail...
... however the infrastructure we have for our Linux builds
should be nearly completely portable to OSX without too much trouble
(in theory at least - i've never done any compilation on OSX).

and in my first reply [2] to his post I went through his list of tools and I think MacPorts has everything in stock for the KDE CI system.

No. [3]

Yes, or he can ask e.g. Brad whether he could support him with some virtual servers, because on Apple hardware you can legally run up to two OSX guest virtual machines since OSX Lion (10.7) [4].

Please, let me know if the information I gave to Ben [2] or what I’ve found about OSX virtualization via Google [3,4] isn’t correct.
