wheel stops here:

"install" also fails on pyobjc-framework-ServerNotification but the message is instead:

  Running setup.py install for pyobjc-framework-ServerNotification

    It appears that both ServerNotification and Message are unsupported on >10.8; if this is the case, I guess the fix here would be to have the root pyobjc package stop depending on them?

    It looks like the framework already doesn't include them as it's in DEL_REQUIRES_10_9.

    It looks like the issue is that that change was made in version 3.1 which hasn't been released on pypi yet.

    I've pushed a fix for this to the 3.0.x branch, and hope to push out a release tomorrow (depending on how much work is waiting for me when I get back home).

    Sorry about the slow response, it's been busy at work and last week I've been travelling (thanks to an unexpected hole in the project planning).

    I don't know when I'll release 3.1, for that I'll have to finish updating the framework wrappers with actual support for APIs introduced in OSX 10.10 (and in a lot of cases 10.9). Finding time to work on that has been hard :-(

    Only having to wait 2 weeks for a response seems pretty good, in the broader context of open source - no need to apologize :). Thanks for getting to this!
