/usr/bin/git-update-server-info on hosted1

Does anyone know why /usr/bin/git-update-server-info on hosted1 has
different owner and mode from what's in the git rpm?

$ rpm -Vf /usr/bin/git-update-server-info
.M...U..    /usr/bin/git-update-server-info

$ ls -l /usr/bin/git-update-server-info
-rwxrwsr-x 1 bobmcwhirter root 178588 Jun 19  2009 /usr/bin/git-update-server-info

I asked in IRC earlier, but it's less likely to be missed here.

We symlink hooks/post-update to this file in most, if not all, git
repositories.  Perhaps someone got the ln syntax wrong and then
restored the file but forgot the owner and mode?

Whatever the case, unless someone knows of a good reason why the file
has the owner and mode that it currently has, we probably want to fix
this (e.g. sudo chown root. /usr/bin/git-update-server-info; sudo
chmod 644 /usr/bin/git-update-server-info).
