Awesome! Thanks for continuing to work on this.
Also, great job on the relay advocacy side too.
And for those following along at home, what they've done here is actually
a system-wide install for Tor Browser, so then when a user runs it,
she gets a local copy of the state that Tor Browser generates. This
is actually one of the directions that we want to explore for the Debian
package as well -- putting the core pieces into /usr/something, and
then when the user runs it, it copies over whatever it needs into the
user's home directory, and on subsequent runs it sees if a new version
has appeared and updates its local files as needed.
