[swift-users] swift redistributable without Xcode

Working on this now.

Out of curiosity:
Let's say I clone and checkout the 2.2.1 release tag
and then run the update-checkout util

git clone https://github.com/apple/swift.git
cd swift
git checkout tags/swift-2.2.1-RELEASE
./utils/update-checkout --clone

Will this update-checkout command clone the llvm & clang & etc
and then move to the correct tag for 2.2.1?  (if there even is one)
or will it use HEAD all of the time?
