[Xcode] IPA Generation Broken, Again

It happened before and shall happen again: xcrun PackageApplication doesn’t work anymore. The whole process isn’t meant for contractors Let’s face it, Xcode is getting better at the coding part, but the signature / IPA generation is “streamlined” for the App Store, which in turn is under a lot of assumptions that I’ve mentioned here […]
