 Replying to [comment:9 boklm]:
 > However I only tried this branch with a build of the alpha, not the
 stable release. I don't know if having this in the tor-browser-builder-3
 could cause problems in the release builds.
 > I see that we checkout tor-browser-builder-3 in fetch-inputs.sh. Is
 there a reason for doing a checkout of this branch and not of $GITIAN_TAG

 Well, we do in fact check out the `GITIAN_TAG` for the non-nightly builds
 via `verify-tags.sh` but agreed this is a strange construction and, now
 that I remember, could haven been responsible for ln5's issues with
 switching to Wheezy for Linux. Could you make a change for this too (in
 this ticket is fine)? Because I am thinking about taking your rebased
 branch as a clean, new `tor-browser-builder-4` we are going to use from
 now on and it would have good to do the right thing with `GITIAN_TAG` as
