 Looks good to me. I'll update the `config.yml` accordingly. It seems we
 need (to check) two further things in this bug:

 1) A proper text explaining what's going on for OS X users < 10.9. Should
 we link to some Mozilla article? I looked a bit at
 ended-for-Mac-OS-X-10-6-10-7-and-10-8/ta-p/32725 but that might not be
 that helpful in our context.

 2) Do we need to do anything to notify OS X users on < 10.9 that Tor
 Browser won't work? IIRC Firefox won't extract from the DMG on an
 unsupported system anymore. Having such a mechanism would probably be best
 (in addition to change the text on the website saying the min supported
 version is 10.9)
