Distributing Tor with TorBirdy
As of now, TorBirdy requires a user has Tor installed, or available through the TBB. We should integrate Tor (and related required components) and start shipping them with TorBirdy so that it can function as a standalone product/extension. This involves two steps:
- Getting Tor and the related components from the TBB and just packaging them with TorBirdy.
- Integrating tor-launcher to work with TorBirdy, as we won't be shipping Vidalia once tor-launcher comes out.
We should do this for all platforms we support.
Note: We can distribute binary components with the TorBirdy extension through Mozilla Add-ons, though this will (may?) delay the review process.
