 In `projects/tor-browser/build.android` we currently use jarsigner to sign
 the apk.

 In order to make the build reproducible, we run it with faketime. However
 doing that leads to a stalled build on Stretch, so we are using Buster as
 a workaround.

 According to eighthave this issue might be solved by using apksigner
 instead of jarsigner:
