Hey everyone! I’m trying to install airflow orchestrator in meltano on my MAC (with M1 chip). I’ve tried with python3.9, meltano 2.4.0 and airflow 2.1.2 It either never finishes the installation… It writes this:

…and I never get back control. Or if I use python3.9 I get some numpy error in a 2000+ lines stderr message like ```Installing 1 plugins... Installing orchestrator 'airflow'...
