And, as a matter of fact, she did :-)-O

I like to bleed on the edge so I update LyX the day I become aware of 
it for myself but have it on a package manager (called homebrew) on the 
boxes I "support". 

The only small issue is one needs to reinstall MacTeX once a year.  

I have a script for this which I run on all my own and supported
machines.  The script doesn't even install the full version of MacTeX,
only the smaller BasicTeX after saving all packages installed and then
pulling the additional ones afterwards saving a few Gigs (even though 
disk space is cheap these days).

Once a month one runs the TeX Live Manager from the command line or
tlcockpit (a java app) and the updates are done.

Totally painless.

greetings, el
