head is a synonym for -CURRENT. You can read more about this topic in our
great handbook:


What it basically means, is that the code hit the source tree of the
development branch, which allows it to be publicly available for other
developers and early adopters. After the code in head is considered stable,
it gets merged to the -stable branches (8.x, 7.x) and will be part of the
next release which will be cut from the given branch (like 8.2 or 7.4).

Kind regards
