Hi Olivier,

Indeed we don't generate Mac application bundles at the moment and we
have no timeline for that.

There is one possible workaround: using conditions (from Dennis) to
generate the directories structure of a Mac application bundle + the
specific files that go inside. A bundle is nothing else but a very
specific directories tree ending with .app :-)

I guess it is in Info.plist but I am not an expert there... does
anyone have a clue?
