10.11 and Homebrew

tl;dr: No, don’t install 10.11 yet. Homebrew doesn’t work (yet?).

After hearing about OS X 10.11’s (El Capitan) “rootless” mode on Six Colors last week, I immediately wondered how this would affect Developers that use tools like Homebrew. So I went to Twitter:

Thanks to @stovak for giving me the heads up on this. Hopefully others will read this post and not be tempted by the OS X Public Beta.

If anyone has found workarounds or fixes, please let us know in the comments or on Twitter! Hopefully this will get fixed before Fall.

Update: @stovak provided some clarification. It’s not completely broken.
