10.5: Remove the 'downloaded file' warning flag
Authored by: Malesca on Nov 09, '07 09:44:45AM

I (the submitter) don't think so. You get the warning because an extended attribute (xattr) named com.apple.quarantine is set on the file when it's downloaded. To my knowledge, xattrs are not stored in the file itself but are file system metadata, so they don't stay with the file as it's uploaded and later downloaded. And even if they did, they would likely be overwritten on download.
