In gitian/ there's a for loop:

   cd linux-langpacks
   wget -U "" -N "${FIREFOX_LANG_VER}-candidates/${FIREFOX_LANG_BUILD}/linux-i686/xpi/$i.xpi"

However, in gitian/versions FIREFOX_LANG_VERSION is set to 24.6.0esr, and the firefox folks have moved 24.6.0.esr from


So, when trying to build the tor-browser-bundle, I get:

Looks like changing the URL in is an insufficient solution. They change the directory structure of the files when they're moved to the archived folder.

What is your use case for retrieving such old language packs? The stable releases are done using the maint-3.6 branch. master is for the 4.x series and there has not been a stable released yet. Just some alphas and nightlies (but that will change next week).

Ooops. I was trying to build from master.

Building from maint-3.6 fixes the issue.
