steps out. Thus, I ended up with a unsigned Pd.app that I'm using in my
I don't remember the exact details, but I wasn't able to sign my result
in a way so that macOS didn't show an alert. It appears that not only
the final Pd.app, but also some components within need to be signed.
Maybe you have more luck with creating a signed app. You'll find the
signing steps in the script mac/osx-app.sh (lines 363-367).
Thanks to Dan for all figuring out.
