Change Description

The first patch of this MR is just documentation changes to the alpha release prep issues since i've been ignoring/overriding parts of the signing+release steps for too long now.

The second patch is the release prep for 13.0a4. This MR assumes we will increment build tags for tor-browser, mullvad-browser, and firefox-android to build3. The changelog assumes we get in tor-browser!721 (merged), firefox-android!10 (merged), !807 (merged), and tor-browser!762 (merged). If this changes, or we get other patches in before we are ready to build, the changelogs will need to be updated.
