 > Okay, I pushed another commit onto the `bug_24912` branch
 to deal with the osx sandbox situation, please review.

 This commit looks good to me.

 > I think I'll go the maint-branch road as I am a bit unclear how to deal
 efficiently with having different versions per project depending on the
 stable/alpha series. I'd especially like to avoid the hassle coming from
 new toolchain versions during the next alpha cycle.

 For the `firefox` part I think we can do it like this:

 And for the `tor` part:

 I think the torbutton, tor-launcher, openssl parts can be done in a
 similar way.

 I am not sure about the toolchain updates yet. Maybe they will require
 lots of changes that would be a hassle to keep behind many `[% IF !
 c("var/release") %]`, but maybe it will only be a few lines of changes in
 just a few places.

 I think it's nice to be able to see the versions of all channels from a
 single branch. Although I'm also fine with going the maint-branch road.
