How does one apply a patch? What does "apply a patch" mean?

You use the patch program to apply the changes that are contained in the attachments to the bug report to the GIMP code.

The usage example from the Wikipedia article about patch should do:

patch < foo.diff

This could be executed in the top directory of your GIMP source tree.

There are parameters to adjust for differences in the diff files regarding both your and the patch author's systems, see - -p is the most commonly used parameter to get rid of leading folders in the paths used in the diff file, for example.
