 Replying to [comment:3 mikeperry]:
 > Ok. How about sha256sums-presigned-build.txt? And should we just make
 this a step in our release process, or should we update the actual build
 scripts? At this point, I am thinking that the release process update is
 OK, but what about later?

 I think I am fine with any fancy additions to "sha256sums-" if they are
 getting our message to the users. I think we should aim at updating the
 actual build scripts in order to avoid adding another thing we need to do
 manually to the release notes. Having a release process update as a
 stopgap is okay.

 > I also think tor-browser-launcher expects sha256sums.txt to exist. We
 should check with them to make sure they can handle the switch.

 Yes, definitely.
