I've installed and use official Blender 2.79 on my Os X. Now I'd like to better understand its structure, and try some development. So I'm trying to download hash 5bd8ac9 11-09-17 from git (the hash shown on the splash screen) so my development is aligned with the official one. Until now, no luck. I refer to https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Doc/Tools/Git page on Blender dev wiki. My question:
How can I download a specific Blender source repo aligned with the official one? In other words, can someone point me to Blender 2.79 git sources?
