We could change that too. E.g. upload the generated pot file to the
nightly-build server.

Ok, so the file would be gone. No problem: it will be rebuilt the next
time (and history of a generated file is irrelevant, because you have
the history of the original files).
And if that ever happens, I would change the build process anyway:
find a way to upload the pot file to a server where the translators
can get the file from instead of having it versioned.

Yes. It deletes missing files automatically.
