Comment (by boklm):

 Replying to [comment:5 yawning]:
 > Ok.  For the sake of my sanity, is the redirect situation to
 `aus1.torproject.org` going to be an ongoing thing, or is the
 `downloads.json` file going to be on `dist.torproject.org`?
 > I'd like the redirect to go away if possible, since I want to pin the
 entire cert chain that I use to fetch said file...

 Currently, the internal updater is using
 http://www.torproject.org/dist/torbrowser/update_2/ URLs, which is
 redirected to dist.tpo for the stable and aus1.tpo for the alpha. At some
 point we want to change the URL to aus1.tpo directly (and have a redirect
 on the old URLs for the older browsers). We have #19481 for that.
