This bug report follows from

Essentially, there needs to be functionality in place to set a maximum
system OS version for a package rather than just minimum.

This is actually quite important now:

SnowLeopard users are being given Leopard versions to install! I know I
can't do anything about current releases, but I'd like this fixed before
my next release, so the following update goes smoothly.

i'd like to have this feature as well.
In this way we could issue 64bit bundles to Snow Leopard users and 32bit ones to Tiger and Leopard users.
Is there any update?

Sorry, no update. If anyone can contribute a patch to resolve this, I'd
be happy to apply it, but I'm unlikely to have time to write one myself
anytime soon.

I don't have the time to work on it either since our workaround is "good
enough" for now:

1) using min-required of 10.6 (even though it is really 10.6.3) for SL versions
2) Releasing the SL version with a bundle version +1 over the Leopard version

You also have to make sure the timestamps are ordered correctly.

  Use NSFileManager interface for DMG unarchive only for 10.7+. On 10.6,  [NSFileManager copyItemAtPath:toPath:error:] can fail with "Argument list too long" if the app bundle contains too many files. The switch to NSFileManager was only required for 10.7 anyway, 10.6 always worked fine.
