Description

We tell people to use the Tor 0.3.0 packages for the development branch:
https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en#development
https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en#source

But Tor 0.3.0 will not be supported on 1 February 2018.

To avoid changing this every 6 months, let's use tor-nightly-master-DISTRIBUTION instead.

Replying to teor:

We tell people to use the Tor 0.3.0 packages for the development branch:

For thouse that are unable to find "0.3.0" either "view source" or disable JavaScript in your browser.

But Tor 0.3.0 will not be supported on 1 February 2018.

To avoid changing this every 6 months, let's use tor-nightly-master-DISTRIBUTION instead.

Do you want this change only for the <noscript> version of the page or the entire page?
Switching to "experimantal" instructions to MASTER will reduce the amount of testing alpha releases will get.

also: the url pointing to https://www.torproject.org/download/download.html.en#packagediff
is not valid (this anchor does no longer exist)

Found the content, that URL should be replaced with:
https://www.torproject.org/download/download-unix.html.en#packagediff

You're right.

We are just starting a new alpha series in the next week or two.
Let's get builders going for 0.3.3, then change both versions of the page to point to 0.3.3.
It would be even nicer if we just had a master, alpha, and stable branch.
That's a conversation we had on tor-dev. I'll bump it again.

Can we also link full list of available releases from both the noscript and script versions of the page?

I tried to get "alpha" or "testing" named repos 3 years ago but weasel does not like that

#25107 only contains a partial fix for this issue: it does not fix the "from source" option.
