Frank and assumed I understood it right - this would not help when the DMG file cannot be
downloaded because of the Gatekeeper. ;-)

You can download it and even install it, but the Gatekeeper will stop you from executing the
binary unless you relax your security settings in System Preferences. Franks problem was mainly
that he still had an old install lying around, and his Dock shortcut still pointed to that

Perfect, perhaps start with a prominent note in README for Mac.

But a much better approach is to sign our OSX releases.

But I see tons of heated discussions about this topic already back in 2012 - were there ever
a conclusion to whether the PMC was allowed to request a separate AOO signing ID, or if the
ASF centrally were able/willing to setup a signing infrastructure using a central Apache signing
ID? LibreOffice signs their OSX releases with a TDF identity.
