In the past 10 years we have managed to achieve very high quality standards
for our multi-platform application. This has worked thanks to the availability
of reference machines for different operating systems, see the still current
specification at

Already since 2013/2014 there is a steady decline of coverage for macOS, and
right now Catalina is just missing.

Maybe someone wants donate a test machine that is easily available via ssh
(almost) all of the time.

I am generally a bit reluctant to switch to the pre-1970 batch queue mode that
has become popular again recently under the slogan of "CI" -- it requires lots
of tinkering and experimentation due to lack of proper interaction with the
machine. (Or maybe the CSDP provider wants to make such a setup for his project.)
