 In `projects/https-everywhere/config` we are using the `master` branch for
 nightly builds, from the git repository https://git.torproject.org/https-

 However the `master` branch on this repository is currently 12 months old.

 To fix that, I think we could either:
 - use the master branch from https://github.com/EFForg/https-everywhere
 instead of https://git.torproject.org/https-everywhere.git, which seems to
 be updated frequently
 - ask legind to update the master branch on https://git.torproject.org
 /https-everywhere.git more frequently
 - not use the master branch in nightly builds but instead use the same tag
 as in the alpha. We can also update this tag manually when a new https-
 everywhere version is released, even when we don't plan to release a new
 Tor Browser soon, to include it in the nightly.
