That is the git path to the repository.  for-next and for-2.6.37 are
branches in that repository.

You're looking at the wrong branch, you need to look at one of the
branches mentioned above.  git branch -r to list remote branches.  I
can't remember what the default branch is but since it changes with
every release it's not always up to date.

Developing against -next is also OK, it contains everything in the above
tree (and then some).
