      Description

      Documentation Request Summary:

      Python is no longer required for install_compass on Mac:
      https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/program/install_compass/index.html

      Should probably add a note that it will always update compass removing any old versions found.

      Engineering Ticket Description:

      The download/install experience for compass is broken.

      I tried downloading the tarball for OSX. The directory contains a bare python script (with no standard .py extension. There is no README to tell me what to do with the install_compass file.

      If I try to click on the file in the finder, most user will get the "install_compass can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer." I can work around by changing my security settings for this one file. But then....

      If I try to open it either from the finder or command line, I get this error from a launched term window:

      $ /Users/monkey101/dist/3.6.0/bin/install_compass ; exit;
      env: python2: No such file or directory

      ...copying shared history...
      ...saving history...truncating history files...
      ...completed.
       
      [Process completed]
      

      If I try to run it from the command line: ./install_compass, I get this:

      monkey101:bin$ ./install_compass
      env: python2: No such file or directory
      

      If I run it by explicitly using python I get a lot of output which is not going to mean much to the average user:

      monkey101:bin$ python install_compass
