Yeah, so in the past Tier 1 platforms (OS X, Win, Lin, FreeBSD) are
always available, but I rarely (if ever) held up RCs for anything
besides that. I do have a list of people to alert, though... (Karel
takes care of Solaris for example as time permits).

Even then, I wasn't always the one doing the builds... Gabor takes
care of FreeBSD for me. And Mark was doing the OS X builds before,
because he had an excellent test farm that allowed him to test a
release across an array of OS X versions.

Right now we're working on getting a Mac. I'll have short-term access
to one by tomorrow thankfully, and be getting a new machine soon. So
hopefully this won't be a problem going forward, although some
knowledge transfer from Mark might be in order. :)
