Description

Tor Browser has nightly builds! Did you know?

If you ask search engines for "tor browser nightly" or "tor browser nightly builds", you won't find them though.

I found the link in an old tbb-dev archive. Here it is:
https://people.torproject.org/~linus/builds/

Unless, who knows, maybe that is not the best link to use.

In any case, it would seem smart to have a way for users to find this directory.

Sounds like it would fit on https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en. We could have a https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en#downloads-nightly anchor on the page pointing to the a link/section below the sandbox one.

Is this something we could implement already or we want some ux-team love on how to do it properly?

These don't actually seem to be that nightly. Last build was 2017-06-19 that I can see.

Yes, linus' nightly build machine is not yet using the new build system, so there is no new nightly builds anymore at that URL.

We have a new nightly builds URL: http://f4amtbsowhix7rrf.onion/tor-browser-builds/
Which is linked from: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorBrowser/Hacking#NightlyBuilds

Replying to boklm:

Any chance that hidden service could also have rsync so it could be mirrored into dist.torproject.org or similar automatically?

I added rsync to that hidden service, so rsync://f4amtbsowhix7rrf.onion/tor-browser-builds/ should be working now.

Awesome! That was quick.

I guess we need a new ticket to get this pulled off to somewhere (like dist.tpo). I have no idea who would be responsible for that.

irl that would be the sysadmin team I suppose. Maybe we could also have a ci job that does that w/ the buids?

comment:11 Changed 2 years ago by irl

I would just cron job an rsync at a sensible time. It's not as instant, but it'd be perhaps less prone to breakage.
