As a mac owner (although one that is not very well supported by

Of course, if the people who are doing the work decide that they do
not want to support installing to a mac anymore, that is perfectly OK.
But I do not think you should make that decision a week before
One thing I forgot to mention in my original reply to jwb (it was
getting long) is that there's a conundrum that applies quite
specifically to Mac support, and it's this: there are quite a lot of
people who want to run Fedora on Macs (seemingly, at least) but very
few in a position to test installs for new releases.
The reason is pretty simple: very few people have a disposable Mac.
About 90% of the time, the Mac people want to install Fedora on is
their personal laptop. So of course they're not willing to test
installing some random pre-Beta nightly snapshot and tell us if
everything explodes. We also can't i) easily or ii) legally (AFAIK)
install OS X into a VM on non-Apple hardware for testing.
We could, I suppose, try to get a few Mac users to look into testing in
VMs on their Macs. But beyond that we need people with 'burner' Macs,
and there aren't very many of them. We (Fedora QA) have just one old
