#27473 closed enhancement (fixed)

TBA: Change package name for alpha

In #26536, we created a temporary APK signing key for the alpha release. Because we are only using a temporary key, We want to release the alpha version using the package name org.torproject.torbrowser_alpha. This will allow us to release the stable version as org.torproject.torbrowser and users can have both apps installed in parallel. This isn't a great user experience, but this allows us to more easily migrate users from alpha to stable. If we don't do this, then users will be prevented from installing the stable version over the alpha version because they will be signed with different keys.

In addition, we'll use "Tor Browser for Android (Alpha)" as the display name (or something similar).
