Homebrew installs the stuff you need that Apple didn’t.

Please note: Homebrew is not 1.0 yet. Generally it works well, but when it doesn’t we’d hope you report the bug. If it’s still broken at 1.0 you have our permission to throw a strop and make a big fuss.

Troubleshooting

Before you report a bug, run brew doctor to diagnose known issues. If the doctor can’t help then use this checklist to correctly report the bug and we’ll get it fixed.

However! Fixing build issues is easier than you think: try brew edit formula-name and see how you fare.

Contributing

In short:

  1. Fork Homebrew.
  2. brew create http://example.com/foo-0.1.tar.gz
  3. git commit Library/Formula/foo.rb && git push
  4. Pull Request.

In long:

If you are chomping at the bit to help out these formula are outdated.
