Richard's instructions are good, but I find it a real shame that as much 
as Rev does for you along the way - it leaves you in the lurch for this 
very crucial stage. You can do practically everything from within the 
environment - and then when it comes time to distribute, out comes the 
cryptic pList editor...

ResEdit is NOT a good choice under OSX, it is REALLY showing it age now, 
and is ill prepared to deal with bundles. The plist editor supplied with 
apple development tools is OK for this, but something is still 
missing... perhaps a step by step recipe. Ken Ray gave us some good 
insights a while back, but unfortunately, once you start to tear apart 
the Rev build, it gets pretty ugly. The really sad part is that we found 
editing the Windows registry using the Transcript tools FAR easier than 
getting the same functions to work in OSX - but of course, Rev provides 
no real help there.
