#30168 new defect

Clean up e.g. tor-browser-build after shipping TOPL

Description

We should go over our pre-TOPL code we used and then clean it up and remove the parts we don't need anymore. E.g Orbot can go and there might other parts we want to rearrange while we are at it.

#30036 might be related in the sense that it deals with parts of tor-browser code that was made obsolete by moving away from a separate Orbot. But now that we have TOPL there might even be more that we can clean up.

Making a note here, android-dependencies.patch should be a commit on tor-browser instead. We don't need to patch our own code for this purpose (e0c5b567242d1bbfaab5a7aaa8e1b76c992cceb2).

One of the intermediate steps is to get Orbot also cleaned up.

I'm in the process of this fix and expect to have completed this week.

May be a silly question, but does the firefox build still depend on orbot? (orbot is still listed in config, but does Orbot provide something we don't get from tor-android-service+TOPL)?

That's gone in #30404 and was the most important bit I am aware of so far. Let's unblock 8.5 here.
