Comment (by cypherpunks):

 Replying to [comment:2 gk]:
 > I am not convinced yet this is a Tor Browser bug. If we don't need a
 versions file (which we apparently don't do) then just adding one because
 torbrowser-launcher depends on it does not make much sense to me.
 Especially as it is barely maintained anymore. I think the much better
 solution would be to get this fixed on torbrowser-launcher's end.

 With all due respect, gk (and much is due!), the very fact that TBL ever
 needed to be written (and the fact that many people still use it) is
 itself an egregiously longstanding Tor Browser bug.

 How many Debian developers have worked for Tor over the years without
 getting this fixed? I can think of at least five, but there are probably
 more. Why is it still not possible to apt-get install Tor Browser??! How
 many times has a Tor Browser non-bug broken Micah's hacky solution to
 Tor's failure to package Tor Browser for Debian/Ubuntu/etc? WTF?
