Yeah.. It's not that simple :-) The release scripts are capable of running
on three different CI providers (two Linux and one Windows), and can run
locally in CLI (which is how I test them on MacOS). Although the release
build tasks currently do not run on Windows (so it's relatively safe to
ignore that OS in this case). But generally all the tools involved need to
run on various operating systems. Which means figuring out what commands I
need to invoke to install whatever is needed. For reference here's the two
scripts involved in building the release:
