Subject Re: What would OpenOffice NON-retirement involve?

Doing some reading, it looks like it may indeed be possible to run OS X on
VirtualBox at least under Windows (not sure about Linux).   If so, I might
be willing to spend some money on an EC2 instance to do Mac builds,
especially if it doesn't need to be up 24x7.

Question:  Does the ASF have any Mac hardware for doing Mac builds?  Or is
everything Mac related left to being done on individual developer machines?
