Just check out the HEAD branch. That is, do not specify any particular
branch. That will get you the development branch which is where gimp 2.3
releases are made from occasionally. We also maintain a stable branch,
labelled gimp-2-2. That's where stable gimp 2.2 releases are being made
from. If you want to get a patch into GIMP, it will almost always first
have to go into the HEAD branch.
