      Description

      The packaging `apple.rake` task uses `hdiutil` to create disk images. When run on a 10.13 system, this creates an APFS volume, which is incompatible with older OS releases and can cause issues with certain package deployment tools (e.g. munki).

      It's a minor change to specify `HFS+` as the filesystem to use. I have a pull request for this ready.
