 Right now we have instructions on verifying the build on our FAQ page
 (https://www.torproject.org/docs/faq#VerifyDownload), which is not the
 best format for new documentation. It makes sense to instead provide these
 instructions alongside the rest of our documentation on verifying the
 integrity of our software with GPG, at https://www.torproject.org/docs
 /verifying-signatures. Erinn has asked me not to edit the signature
 verification page directly, so I'm instead attaching a patch of what I had
 in mind.

 If my patch does not reflect the direction we want to take our
 documentation, we could also think about other ways of getting build
 verification instructions off the FAQ; for example, creating a dedicated
 wml page on the deterministic build system.
