I have verified it is definitely not the PKI issue.  OS X downloaded files are being tagged by gatekeeper independent of browser used, and tracked even if moved -> always not allowed to open even if the Trust is proper and Gatekeeper is on.

If I download the same file from another OS, and move it to the OS X machine, it opens and runs as expected even if gatekeeper is set to "Mac App Store".

Not sure when this started by sometime after OS X 10.8 was released as it used to work fine.   I searched Google and it appears to be a widespread issue, we just noticed it with this package and verified it independently so I'll drop it from this list as its an OS X issue not an issue with OS X Forge packages.  I'll file a bug report for gatekeeper, but I'm sure there is one already open.  Downloading outside of the instance to be run on seems the only mitigation that won't drop the Gatekeeper settings to off.

I have a local copy which I had backed up from some time before this started occurring, I assume an OS X update.  The backed up version has the same SHA-256 hash as the downloaded package.  I can install that package on any setting in Gatekeeper even "Mac App Store" which is odd.
