Deal with Tor Launcher potentially disappearing entirely
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/31286#comment:42 reads “Once tor-launcher is gone and its functionality has been completely integrated into Tor Browser (9.5?) […]”. It’s not clear to me if it was already decided this would be the case, or not. That ticket has a bunch of discussion, ideas, and mockups on this topic.
We should get in touch with the Tor Browser team ASAP to learn what their plans are: if Tor Launcher disappears for real, we’ll need to Do Something About It™, which will likely not be cheap.

- Priority changed from High to Normal
> After a meeting with the Tor Browser devs we have learned: Tor Launcher will not go anywhere during the upcoming 9.5.x cycle, so we can forget this until they start thinking about the 10.x cycle when 9.5.x has been released (September 2020).
Thank you for gathering this info and reporting back.
That’s not urgent anymore so I’m downgrading priority accordingly :)
