Description

In Tor Browser 6.5a4, in ticket #19481, we changed the update URL to use https://aus1.torproject.org/dist/torbrowser/update_2/. However it should have been https://aus1.torproject.org/torbrowser/update_2/ (without the dist directory).

I think adding a symbolic link dist -> . in directory /srv/aus1-master.torproject.org/htdocs on staticiforme would fix that, but I don't have write permission in that directory to do it. Could a sysadmin create this symlink?

Probably a redirect would be smarter.

Can we put a time limit on that dist/ element?

comment:2 Changed 3 years ago by boklm

A redirect would be fine.

For the time limit, I think 3 months would allow most user to update to the next version, but not all, so 6 months might be better.

Done. Should become active everywhere over the next few hours.
