Not sure what you mean but it is a repository that contains Firefox ESR
code and on top of that our patches we need to apply. The branch names
encode the ESR version and the Tor Browser version: e.g. the branch for
ESR 38.2.0 used in Tor Browser 5.0 is tor-browser-38.2.0esr-5.0-1.

> In particular, how are new Firefox releases imported? How can I get a diff of Tor changes to the underlying Firefox release?

We are using the git mirror at https://github.com/mozilla/gecko-dev, the
esr38 branch in particular. Importing the Firefox releases is still done
by hand as the canonical repository delpoyed by Mozilla is using
mercurial and finding the right commits is not that trivial sometimes.

Looking at https://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-esr38/graph/ should
give you the branch you are looking for. The content of the last commit
there is the content of the last Mozilla commit in our respective
branch. To find that mapping you could use


or whatever fits your need.

All commits on top of that commit are our patches.
