I've tested both ET_2019_10 and the development version on Mojave with osx-homebrew.cfg and replacing gcc-8 with gcc-9.

It looks good, run ends in less than 10 min, no test is hanging, all tests pass, except for:

Tests failed:

    memspeed (from MemSpeed)

Subject: [Users] Meeting Minutes for 2019-11-14

Present:  Steven R. Brandt, Helvi, Zach, Roland, Maria Babiuc, Bill Gabella, Christopher Evans, Geraint Pratten, Peter, Robynm, Yosef
Led by: Helvi
Note taker: Steve

* Release planning
    * Bikal ETK code from Zach
        * Helvi volunteered to review
        * Zach thinks it's ready to review now, he's been working on documentation
        * It does not generate a monolithic thorn, you have to specify finite difference order gauge, etc., at the time the thorn is genereated. Maybe many of these can be runtime?
    * Spherical BSSN and Spherical MHD from vasilly
        * Manuella wants an applications paper with both before she makes the thorns open source, these thorns probably won't be in the next release.
    * Upgrade to illinois GRMHD
        * Notebooks in repo serve as documentation (no review for documentation update is required)
        * Piecewise polytropic equation of state is added
        * Not a big review task, Roland agreed to do this
    * Zach also has a TOV code which he might want to contribute
    * Steve would like to get Presync in
    * Peter says that he will have updates to the self-force code

* Gallery examples
    * BBH gallery example has been updated
    * BNS gallery example
        * Roland has verified the example works and the differences occur because
            * we now use EOS_Omni
            * sensitive to level of optimization O3 and O2
    * Steve suggests it would be nice to have a bigger gallery
        * Roland wants GRMD example
        * Could have a self-force gallery example

* ET Status on MacOS
    * Tested macports on Catalina
        * No need to compile gcc anymore
        * Same problem as Mojave, four tests hang (CT Multilevel, etc.), cause unknown
    * Set up Homebrew
        * Can compile with homebrew.cfg or patch to generic.cfg
        * Fails with the same tests
        * Hangs not verified with Homebrew + Catalina

* Note that tickets need to be reviewed. Please review.

* ETK meeting in Auguest at LSU
