To me, "head" refers to the active tip of whatever branch the user is
thinking about, e.g., "head of mainline," "head of 3.3," etc.

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater
than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace.  We seek
not your counsel, nor your arms.  Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.            - Samuel Adams
