Ahh, but this was the beauty of the old system. While you thought the updater above was the best one for your mac, I myself preferred a python script to do the job (http://code.google.com/p/wowacepy/). Everyone had their own "favorite" and we all still got our addons/updates.
Heck, I even switched a lot of my addons to "Ace" equivalents simply to not have to manually update/maintain them. With the release of 3.0, I'm going to start from ground zero again, going minimal, and re-evaluate how many mods I will use that are "Ace" (aka determine how much I simply can't live without them if there isn't an alternative).
i just meant the guy knows a lot about how to make an app for mac, so he could work with the guys 'n gals over here to make a good mac client for the new system :)
why not work together with the dude from wowaceupdater for mac? he had -the best- mac addon updater for ace addons available. with a true mac feeling! always worked, never crashed, never ever any problems. it didn't have an option for unembedded/embedded addons etc though, it was something i wished for though.
anyway, this is the url, you can find the app and the author's contacts link through it:
