Comment (by boklm):

 I think the main sub tasks are:
 * generating new certificates to sign the nightly mars, and adding them in
 tor-browser in `toolkit/mozapps/update/updater/Makefile.in` (for the
 public part), and on the nightly build machine
 * changing the version number (currently set to 'tbb-nightly') to an
 increasing version number (maybe the date ?), so that the updater can see
 it as a new version
 * updating the nightly build scripts to sign the mar files, generate the
 xml update responses and upload them somewhere
