Using for downloading PyCrypto is annoying like hell on our LXC machine. We could use which even has a signature for it:

Thanks to isis for spotting this.

bug_16948 ( in my tor-browser-bundle repo has the fix. It resolves the SNI issue (although we hit that for the Go download, too :( ) but is good for reliablity as well as I encountered outages from time to time when trying to build something.

I assume it does not make sense to use the signature at this time instead of checking a hash?

We are already doing both! The PyCrypto signature is part of the weak-key-club at the moment. I agree, we could look over that club again and try to decide what a weak key is and treat the member accordingly. For now, leaving the things as is seems not bad to me. Fixed in commit ca56d487d9d59d59e1d7e9b4af760379ac0f876b on master and in commit 8610ac13cda8ba91d2baba93c28c7fd726ca3c7c on maint-5.0
