 > 2. Add the Noto fonts directly to the tor-browser.git repo, and add
 something in the Mozilla build scripts to install them in the directory
 where fonts are bundled. That would avoid modifying tor-browser-bundle.git

 I think this makes sense. Another thing that bothers me with the currently
 proposed solution is that it makes bisecting quite error-prone. Although
 this is not documented yet the fastest approach is to just take an
 existing Tor Browser bundle and just bisect the tor-browser parts copying
 the result over the respective bundle parts with each iteration. This is
 not working anymore with having so many parts in tor-browser-bundle.git.
 Having everything in tor-browser could help us debug issues due to font
 updates easier as well.
