Description

On http://f4amtbsowhix7rrf.onion/ we are currently building some "alpha nightly build", where we are doing equivalent of a make alpha using the master commit on tor-browser-build.

The goal was to have some builds closer to what the next alpha will look like. However missing tor-browser.git changes make it less useful, and break when some tor-browser-build change depends on a tor-browser.git change.

To save some resources, we should remove this type of build for now, and think harder about what other types of nightly builds we might want.

However missing tor-browser.git changes make it less useful, and break when some tor-browser-build change depends on a tor-browser.git change.

We could fix this by making it use the tor-browser.git alpha branch rather than the last tag. However the difference with normal nightly builds then become small, so it is not clear that it useful.
