Did you happen to check if we even have a current nightly? ISTR several months ago C-Mike had a question about building the tarball so he could try out the Python 3 bindings where someone pointed out we post nightlies and he could use that ... but then it turned out that the process had not been working for a few years.

Maybe I mis-remember or maybe it was fixed. But it could be that none of them have any value (they are all old) and we are not even making these anymore.
