There is at present no "nightly" version of this. The commit was 29 March, and last nightly is 22 March.

It must have been a bug of the daylight saving time change.
Maybe all the code has vanished during that event.

The nightly server seems intermittent - for some reason it can stall, and eventually, when pushed, someone kick-starts it again.

This is the anniversary of the greatest April Fool's day joke: the 1957 BBC News program that reported on the early spring bringing the south Swiss spaghetti crop ripe: worth seeing the video if you have never seen it. And the UK population swallowed the story

Perhaps the text-only system will include Tools → Language → Translate.
