Thanks for that explanation. It helps below:

I do think his wording is better than before my changes, but as I
mentioned: any use of the word "certify" implies some kind of
authority. Thus, the use implies somebody is reviewing and approving
the process of creating those binaries.

From your description, I can certainly understand what *you* mean by
"certified", but then it seems to lead to "who reviewed their
procedures and has certified it?" We have no ISO-9000 for building
binaries :-P

I'd be totally fine with the phrase "internally-certified", if that
works for you guys. (C. Mike can tell us whether to keep/lose that
hyphen :-P )

That phrasing makes it much more clear that the certification process
is complete internal to the supporting company. That there isn't a
higher authority (which could be read as the community).
