I'm trying to get an app notarized, which was written in python and converted to an .app using pyinstaller. It functions perfectly well.
When I attempted to codesign, I entered the following at the command line:
codesign -s "PaulF (TeamID)" -v --deep --timestamp --entitlements /Users/fishbacp/Desktop/entitlements.plist -o runtime /Users/fishbacp/Desktop/dist/My_Application.app
entitlements.plist is apparently required since binaries were created using pyinstaller. It's contents can be viewed at https://haim.dev/posts/2020-08-08-python-macos-app/.
The message I receive states ".DS_Store files cannot be a symlink", which prevents Apple from notarizing the app.
I'm a new developer and have no idea how to interpret and resolve this message. Running Mac 11.3.1 if that helps.
