there are occasional issues with the M1 mac in the build farm (can be 
the vm crashing or some network issues or some osx update or ...) so 
maybe it relates to a recent drop out

I pushed a new 'version' to force a build so you can try to pick up the 
right binary from


and see if that one works (so run the update and then use that bin and 
remake the formats) .. if that fails i need to make new zips

question for mojca: i see al getting compiled, even the vm on the mac 
but not the arm mac bin itself so is the main one listening to the 
master? : luametatex.darwin-arm64.moj stays inactive
