So, which "mac guys" are you referring to? I recently got a Macbook for
work and have been busy trying to recreate my environment/tools. I found
the "GPG Suite" from this web site: https://gpgtools.org/index.html
which seemed legit enough ... are those the developers you're referring
to? Is there any concern over using their stuff?
I got to their site from the link on
https://www.gnupg.org/download/index.html so I had assumed it was Ok. :-/
