Comment (by boklm):

 This ticket is only about fixing the nightly builds, so I think that in
 options 1 and 3 gk meant using the master branch in the nightly builds,
 and the tag of the latest version in regular releases.
 For our regular releases, we want to keep using the latest HTTPS
 Everywhere release, with extension update mechanism operational (at least
 concerning the issue we are talking about in this ticket).

 We only want to use the master branch for our nightly builds. Those builds
 are not intended to be used for more than a few days after they are built,
 so keeping the extension or its rulesets updated does not really matter
 here. The main use of the nightly build is for testing. We can use the
 latest HTTPS Everywhere release for that (option 2), but using the master
 branch would allow us to detect in advance possible issues before the next
 HTTPS Everywhere version is released.

 So I think the main question is whether it's possible to push the master
 branch to git.torproject.org in addition to github. If it's not possible
 then we should either switch to github, or stop using the master branch in
 the nightly and use the latest tag instead.
