Comment (by gk):

 Well, we only use master for our nightly builds as we thought it would be
 good to detect HTTPS-E issues (in our context) as early as possible. But
 that of course is kind of pointless with master on tpo not being in sync
 with the one on Github. So, I think there are basically three ways to
 solve this bug:

 1) Sync HTTPS-E master on Github with the counterpart on torproject.org
 2) Use the latest HTTPS-E release (i.e. the .xpi) in our nightly builds as
 3) Use the HTTPS-E repository on Github for all Tor Browser needs (just
 using Github for the nightlies is not easily possible)

 I'd prefer 1) and am not so happy with 3) while 2) would somehow work for
 us (although it feels like we could/should do better than that).

 What do you think?
