Threatening to stop VLC on OSX on the website main page did not work.
I just suspect there are comparatively few open-source volunteer developpers 
running MacOS X.

The UI, the video and audio outputs, the contribs, the framework/SDK.

But with RC2 out this week, it's rather late to find developpers for the next 
release. And then, starting with shotgun bug fixing a few weeks before a 
release is probably an excellent way to burn your motivation out really fast. 
IMHO, we cannot afford to loose any new developper like that.
