signtool py3 support
byMozilla RelEng uses a tool called signtool for its signing. Historically, this has been part of the build/tools repo, which we've been wanting to move away from.
I recently ported build-tools to py3, essentially porting the libraries and unittests but ignoring most of the scripts. Signing in a py3 scriptworker was the impetus behind this. However, after the port, I noticed signtool stopped working; I suspect I had hacked my virtualenv to debug, and something about that got it working in py3.
After getting permission to hard fork signtool, I ported it to use
requests, and refactored it a bit to make it a little easier to test. There are still some overly complex functions and I only have 65% test coverage right now, but it's working in py3.
