[tor-project] PieroV's Monthly Status Report, September 2023

Hi everyone!
Here is my status report for September 2023.

This month, I continued working on the refactoring of the Tor integration in Tor Browser and finally merged the merge requested with the biggest changes [0]. During the month, I also fixed some bugs it caused and improved the compatibility with the external Tor daemons.

Then, I worked on some audits for the 102 to 115 transition. In particular, I reviewed our profiles [1].
Some other tasks included swapping a few branding assets, such as the About dialog wordmark and the Windows installer icons.
I also fixed the reproducibility bug with generated headers on Windows [2] and upstreamed the patch to Firefox.

During September, we had two emergency releases. I helped with the stable channel: I prepared and built both 12.5.4 and 12.5.6. For 13.0a4, I only rebased it on top of Firefox 115.2.1.

Finally, I worked on enabling system-wide installs for Mullvad Browser. However, it's a work in progress as it requires some non-trivial changes to the updater.
