I just checked out git://git.gnome.org/gimp-help-2
and the README (of master branch) starts like this:
| GIMP-Help is a help system designed for use with the internal GIMP help
| browser, external web browser and HTML renderers, and human eyeballs.
| Docbook is used to create a highly customizable system for all needs.
| The current manual documents features for GIMP 2.6.
So does that mean, the help is for version 2.6 but not for 2.8 yet?
