Hi Michael,

While not packaged/waiting: not sure but IF MySQL is supported in Ubuntu
builds, you could try to run a virtual machine (Virtualbox?) with a
minimal Ubuntu and install QGIS in that?

Not sure how good Docker is working on Mac, but Tim Sutton also created
a Docker image which will run QGIS in a Docker container:
but output it to your X-server (uh... does Mac still us X???)?

Or if all that fails: get an old laptop and install Ubuntu on it :-)
