 Replying to [comment:12 eighthave]:
 > Another nice feature of getting Tor Browser integrated into the F-Droid
 ecosystem is the "Update Channels" library for making an app be able to
 find/download/install it own updates.  One way it can operate is that TBA
 would check the Tor Project repo for updates.  This requires only a HTTP
 HEAD request, then comparing the ETag, so like < 1kb.  One mode of
 operation is starting to check for updates if it hasn't been updated in
 the past month.

 > This is relevant when TBA inevitably distributed outside of
 F-Droid/Play.  People will get it from APKMirror, APKPure, Aptoide, or any
 of the myriad third party app stores out there.

 That's indeed an interesting point, thanks for mentioning it.
