Is anyone using make.osx?

There is a discussion in a pull request about whether it is still needed.

https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/751

It would be nice to have one obvious way to build on OS-X, so it makes sense to remove this file in that case. However, I thought it might be worth casting this question out before doing so.

Cheers,
Mike

I do, but I’m not wedded to it; I’ll use whatever is there. The convenience of it is that it downloaded dependencies and built them for you. Will setup.py do the same?

No, it won't. The problem with make.osx in that regard is that the dependencies and their urls are version-dependent and ever-changing, so a single make.osx would need to be much more complex than the present one is, and to be maintained, which the present one mostly was not.
