 As of TBB 7.5, app.update.url points to https://aus1.torproject.org .
 Wouldn't it be more sensible for the Tor Project to point automatic
 updates of its software to services it operates ''inside'' of the Tor
 network that it maintains? Metrics could also benefit. The onion service
 of aus1 is listed on onion.torproject.org.
