Where can I find the source code, corresponding to this exact build 2.79.7 blender-2.79 e045fe53f1b0 ? - https://download.blender.org/release/Blender2.79/latest/
The source code of blender is available in a git repository, as documented in the blender wiki, which explains how to build the code for your operating system:
There is also a mirror of the code repository on github: https://github.com/blender/blender

$\begingroup$ Indeed, thanks for letting me know. I just fixed them. The second one is a git repository, not meant to be navigated via a browser. $\endgroup$– MehdiMay 21, 2020 at 9:22
Thank you both! Indeed using git to to get the code:
git clone git://git.blender.org/blender.git
and then (after entering the repository directory - "cd blender"):
git checkout e045fe53f1b0
to get that particular commit, worked.
(I didn't know git enough to think of that solution.)
all git commits are logged under some id(commit hash).
git checkout "commmitHash" This statement resets the head to the particular commit.
I found this commit at commit link
commit hash =>
git checkout e045fe53f1b0would do it. Have you tried? $\endgroup$
