Comment (by Rezzy-dev):

 Thanks for the effort, Craig, I really appreciate it. And I understand why
 this is frustrating.

 I think Catalina may be too old for the 3.0.0 release of Openshot. I would
 try an earlier release for Catalina: a version after 2.3.3.

 That error seems like it's not finding the Python libraries -- which could
 be due to a Python version mismatch.

 As for the user statistic on this site, I don't believe they are an
 accurate representation about the number of active users. For one, that
 second person is not me: so there's already 3 of us! Not all users bother
 to sign up to the bug report system or even know how to, and so many users
 opt out of monitoring these days (because online companies/corporations
 have been abusing their surveillance and data-hoarding powers/abilities).

 So I am certain that there are way more than 3 active users of Openshot on
 MacPorts. And there would be even more if the port worked reliably (which
 is tricky, because Openshot itself doesn't work reliably across OS X
 versions -- each version of Openshot is specifically tied to a Mac OS
 version, it seems, without that being clearly documented anywhere).

 I am curious, though, as to why MacPorts doesn't offer the native Mac app
 bundle/download for a package if it is officially available (such as in
 the case of Openshot here). It should at least notify the user that a
 native Mac version/alternative of the app is available. It would be a nice
 feature to have.
