Sorry for my silly question: How I can your brushes with Gimp?

OK, so I'm being Mr. Silly, switched to the 1.3 branch, it worked.

Switching to the 1.3 branch, and the previous tip about adding
share/pkconfig to the paths used by pkgconfig allowed GIMP to find the
mypaint-brushes files that I installed for use by GIMP.

The configure checks in GIMP don't like the 2.x version you get if you just
checkout and install the files from git master.
Yep that's on purpose. MyPaint/libmypaint development evolved their
brush format with incompatible changes. There are new parameters (some
of which can currently crash GIMP, which is still to be fixed on
libmypaint side) and some parameters are the same but actually behave

The library has been versionned already (current libmypaint master is
version 2 though there has been no release yet) and we needed to also
have brushes versionned as well for the above reasons. We also needed
brushes as a separate package (otherwise MyPaint is a dependency of
GIMP!) and finally we needed to make sure of the installation path
(otherwise we have to "guess" and in many cases, the MyPaint tool was
just useless with no brushes available).

For all these reasons, I took the MyPaint current brushes. And I made
a branch to freeze the brushes before all the changes happened. But
the master branch still needs to follow MyPaint master development.
