In general you can look at http://trac.webkit.org/browser/releases/ 
Apple to see what Subversion revisions correspond to various releases  
of Safari. Most/all releases are made from a branch, and nightlies are  
made from trunk, so the nightlies won't match the release exactly.

It looks like Safari 3.2.3 (and 3.2.2) is missing from that page. Mark  
Rowe might know why. Safari 2.0.4 predates when we started making tags  
of Safari releases in Subvesion.
