Torsocks tarballs should not be on my people.tpo

Description

As it turns out, I release torsocks tarball using the people.tpo URL:

https://people.torproject.org/~dgoulet/torsocks/

This is kind of not good if the maintainership ever changes or even if someonelse does a release. The Debian package watches that URL for new release which is not ideal.

I think we should move that location to dist.torproject.org/torsocks if possible?

Yes, agree: dist is a good destination.

See the comment on https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/26849#comment:7 for options about how to proceed. I'd say, given the infrequency of torsocks releases, that asking somebody in the torwww group to put the file into place is the best option. If you turn out to do that more than once or twice a year, then we can explore better ways to scale it.
