Description

The signature verification page at https://www.torproject.org/docs/verifying-signatures.html.en needs some work. A number of users have written the help desk to say they found the instructions confusing. The bash commands can be simplified, for example, by removing the full filepath in front of gpg.exe (since GnuPG's filepath gets added to your PATH variable anyway upon installation). The screenshots Sherief made for https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/9843 could also be added.

This page might also need to include a script for verifying the TBB 3 bundles.

I think creating instructions on how to verify the TBB 3 bundles deserves its own ticket. I'm planning on closing this ticket as resolved when phobos merges it.

We decided to roll back changes I made to the web page so we can review the page further.

Adding 'erinn' to cc list of every ticket with 'helix' in its cc list -- erinn is helix's trac username.

Removing helix from cc lists -- helix is not erinn's trac username.

Severity: Normal

What has further review of the page revealed? filepath in front of gpg.exe seems rather useless.
Found similar issues with help with thesis page on my website.
