Hi! I was thinking about trying to edit the source code of TeXmacs and contribute some slight improvements upstream, but my first problem is that I am having trouble building it. My platform is macOS 12.3 and I am using an M1 machine. It seems that the first step is to downgrade several libraries on my machine to some very old versions, and I am worried that doing so may impede my other development projects, so I was wondering if there is a preferred workflow for clean-room development (perhaps using a virtual machine).
Is anyone else having similar issues? I don’t have a lot of experience with virtualization (I left the software industry right before things like Docker became de rigueur), but maybe that is the right way for me to go.
