Comment (by mcs):

 [I thought I posted this comment a couple of days ago, but just found out
 that I did not]

 Kathy and I found a few more commits by looking at all recent changes that
 affected `toolkit/xre/nsUpdateDriver.cpp` as well as any files under the
 following subdirectories:
 * tools/update-packaging
 * toolkit/components/maintenanceservice
 * toolkit/mozapps/update
 Here are the additional ones we found:

 We reviewed all of the changes (well, we mostly ignored the changes to the
 tests since we don't currently run automated tests against the updater
 code). Kathy and I do not think these changes will break anything in Tor
 Browser, but some of the changes are extensive enough that we feel like we
 should do some testing once you have created a tor-browser branch that is
 based on the 52.2.0esr code. Please let us know when such a branch is
