Sorry, I misunderstood your original goal: If you’re interested in a fix for the marching ants problem for GIMP 2.10.28, then this will be much simpler. (For some reason, I was thinking you were trying to update the GIMP 3 prerelease.)

So for this case, we can indeed vet this via `gimp2-devel`, per Bill Cole’s suggestion.
