Changing Keychain Minder’s displayed text using Xcode

For those who also want to do this for their own organization, see below the jump for the procedure I’ve used.

Update – July 6, 2012 – Keychain Minder does not appear to be currently available on the AFP548 site. I’ve posted a zipped copy of Keychain Minder 1.5 on my GitHub repo for those who need it.
