 Okay, let me start by replying to the ToDos:

 > Some TODOs:


 > * Integrate in tor-browser-build: is the toolchain ready? would it "just
 work" to change the firefox repo to point to this one?

 No, it is not yet. The current branch is `linux_esr68_v3` in my repo (with
 probably a bunch of `linux_esr68_v$` to follow) but there are still build
 requirements missing (`nodejs` is the next one to add)


 > * Updater: will mcs/brade work on these?


 > * Onboarding: as described in #28822, this needs to be ported, since
 onboarding (bootstrapped) extension is not there anymore. I could take a
 look at this one.

 Sounds good.

 > * Onion security expectations: a couple of patches, depending on
 availability, perhaps pospeselr could work on these?

 What are the issues here? Could you file a new bug to track that work?

 > * Decide what to do with patches from #28711.

 Ideally we could backport them and have some knowledgeable Mozilla person
 looking over the result.


 > * Backport https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1330467 or wait
 if it's included in 68.

 It seems we need to backport them, alas. :( They got a minus for beta
 (that is esr68) inclusion.

 > * Android: should we do this after desktop patches? here or in a
 separate ticket?

 We should do it in parallel or better: not blocking the rebasing work on
 desktop patches. sysrqb will pick this up and probably decide whether to
 use a child bug or have the rebase in this ticket.
