Yes it was but I replaced it with the xattr modified one. All good if it works normally with the dmg.
I totally understand your point with the sign process. I only accepted it for the sake of simplicity for the users and I wasted a significant amount of time getting it going outside of Xcode for my project. I cursed most of the time
Ill rather offer things like that just in case then remaining silent.
ChatGPT at least brought me to use the codesign tool. Since I had no of how macOS or their Apps in general work. I think its helpful but I had to push it hard in specific directions with questions or feed it very little chunks. It was helpful for getting a general idea of how something is written or something you can than do the opposite of
In General its a bit of shitty that they want you to channel into their eco system so hard. With python it was even harder (pyinstaller and nuitka package/compiled). Especially for such small projects as mine are. Luckily the M1 had the huge advantage of very low powerdraw. So Iḿ saving now quite a lot of energy at least (5-50W compared to 120-200 W before)
I had a look at how the freecadians did it but couldnt find out much. For some reason freecad didnt displayed a warning. I wrote a python script with multiple options as a test and signing tool so it became kind of ok. Similar to what you did there I guess. I had automatic build for mac and windows without signing in place in github but since it was a package and pretty hue with 200- 500 MB it quickly used up github actions free limits.
I haven´t found an macOS image hat I use with jenkins or drone yet. How are you doing this? A dedicated mac were you build things? Since Apple doesnt seem to allow Virtual machines and such? I just found out that this is usually handled by some appel build system were you need Xcode for.
I managed to half my powerdraw last year and added a single 200W panel thats only harvesting the good stuff until midday but It will be expanded hopefully soon. Sadly I dont have a usable roof, just blacony.
Still some devices that pull unneccessarily much power but I got ideas for them. Targetin sub 800 kWh/Year.
