Frequently I want to find a nightly that was built on or near the date a bug was reported when tracking down a progression and the bug reporter did not explicitly mention version information. Currently the nightly archive page, <https://webkit.org/nightly/archives/>, supports only searching by revision range. Moreover it does not support listing all revisions on a single page, a paginated listing, or have quick links to see listings for pre-defined revision ranges. The latter was available in the old version of the archive listing page and hence made it possible to manually bisect the pre-defined revision ranges to find a build on or near a date. Together these limitations of the new nightly archive listing page make is difficult to quickly find a nightly built on or near a date without resorting to manual revision range bisection (painful), trac.webkit.org or a local checkout to map a date/date-range to a revision/revision-range. We should make it straightforward to find a nightly on or near a date.
