I'm setting up a GitHub account and have downloaded Git's credential-osxkeychain executable via the Password Caching section of GitHub's instructions. But... I am paranoid enough to look for some reassurance that I've got my hands on the right thing. Can anybody out there verify an MD5 for the executable at http://github-media-downloads.s3.amazonaws.com/osx/git-credential-osxkeychain? (Yes, that is a direct link to the exe!) Better yet, point to an official source.

You're absolutely right to be cautious about this. I contacted GitHub's support about this issue and about the fact that the the source code for this utility should be open-sourced somewhere official (like GitHub's own GitHub organization). I encourage you to do the same. –  Olivier Lacan Dec 17 '13 at 6:16
