If that's true, it's strange that none of the automatic build failed:

Or does it auto-disable the corresponding language without failing?

Well, such tests are not quick and executing them for each commit in a
hook seems sub-optimal.

It's possible to use some robot to handle the merge of new branch only
after a successul build but I think it's a bit overkill for us. And it
would also further confuse translators.
