 Thank for you feedback.

 without checking their checksum, so we don't really know what we are

 I'll fix that if it come to that.

 It can be used in GitLab instance at https://oniongit.eu or you can mirror
 to gitlab.com. Where is the CI script for Tor being used which I linked

 I followed the [build
 A proper CI needs to run all of them on a bare system - reasonable
 compromises are possible of course. After you set up a CI infrastructure
 or bought a plan from a provider, I think resources no longer matter. Note
 that you can connect arbitrary machines as runners to GitLab, so
 trustworthy volunteers might donate CI resources.

 > why is the script first starting a build with LXC, and after doing that
 starting an other one in the vagrant directory?

 Aren't those the two different build systems and how one would use them -
 obviously not, but I never got so far, see e.g.
 https://gitlab.com/krichter/tor-browser-bundle/-/jobs/34423604 for the
 current build?

 > starting with version 7.5a5, we are now using rbm and tor-browser-
 build.git rather than gitian and tor-browser-bundle.git for new

 Same here, I think I never got the build past the downloading of
 dependencies. Maybe you can fix the checksum error shown in the linked
 GitLab CI log and notify me so that I can proceed with the tests.
