Given the CDN-sponsoring by Fastly  I wonder what the future will
hold for mirror volunteers. I do know that those mirrors aren't taken
into account for updates and aren't listen on the download site . The
only place I've seen them so far was when I used Tor Browser Launcher
, which uses a mirror list from 2 years ago.
My question is: what, if anything, is planned for the mirrors? Will the
main use be a backup, in case the main site goes down and/or is
compromised? Will they be included as part of the Fastly transport? Or
will they be only a fallback for advanced users who want to compare
binaries from multiple sources for integrity?
It would be nice if anyone from within the project could answer any of
