Description

Sponsor O requires support (just me) to add Tor Browser videos showing verification, installation and usage. But we're swapping Erinn's key soon and recording videos showing her key will confuse users.

I am tempted to wait for #3861 and #6540 just to make things simpler for users but I am not sure how long it will take...

Just to give an update here from the Tor Browser side: We have a new Tor Browser signing key that should get used from the next releases on (mid-January 2015). I've planed to work on #3861 to get that going in Q1 2015. We won't have it ready for the mid-January release but I think we are entitled to believe we get everything to work for the subsequent ones starting end-February. #6540 is not in the scope for Q1, though, as signing on OS X got more complicated due to new requirements Apple imposed (see comment:16:ticket:6540 and #13252 for details). I think we could realistically start working on that after we switched to ESR 38 which is supposed to happen at the end of Q3.

Sherief: What do you need from us by when? I am currently working on #3861 which is a bit tricky. We want to ship the authenticode signing starting with the next release (due on Mar 31) but I am not sure yet if I get that properly done using a Linux box (as we plan to do). Maybe I have to use a Windows machine as a stopgap.

If you need the signing being "ready" before that I could create some custom bundles for you, I guess.

That's great. I am fine with just the Windows package since it is the most troublesome to verify (no native checksum tool on windows to check the downloaded gpg4win binary).

I plan to record the videos once TB 4.5 becomes stables (mid April I presume?) because it doesn't make sense to record using older versions due to the newly introduced TorButton and UX enhancements.

If you need the signing being "ready" before that I could create some custom bundles for you, I guess.

I could use that in the usage and best practices video and finish it early. If it's easy to do and won't be drastically different from the stable release then please send me one.

Thank you.

Good idea to add a video to the manual. Did anybody see a link to former videos or was this just preparation so far?
