Thanks for the update and clarification of what you are seeing.
I will update the related tickets, add some clarity to the Installer page and post a blog entry to clarify this. Also, the real instigator of this problem is that the Code Signing Identity I used for singing the installers is not a DeveloperID and of course the installers do not come from the Mac Apps Store (MAS), so seems to trigger unpredictable results right now.

> I wanted to clarify that quarantine extended attribute appears to be where the misleading this package is damaged message is from, since it occurs with that extended attribute with or without the proper PKI chains for the Application signing. I tried it both ways and the error from quarantine happens first no matter if the PKI trust is present or not, and only occurs if the quarantine flag is present. Hope that helps anyone else getting that particular message.

>>> 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.
