i give up... i'm able to clone gnumeric and pull down the latest code,
but i have been unable to figure out how to get the latest official
i want to build release 1.9.6
i think doing so involves using a tag... i found one that looks like
what i need: GNUMERIC_1_9_6
i can't find the documentation on how to use it
the section "Using Tags" in http://live.gnome.org/Git/Developers is
unhelpful, only noting that maintainers use tags to mark releases, and
not showing how tags can be used
i don't know if i have to clone, pull, checkout, or fetch the
release... i've tried various combinations
for instance, i've tried the following:
$ git clone -n git://git.gnome.org/gnumeric

$ cd gnumeric
$ git checkout GNUMERIC_1_9_6
error: Entry 'ChangeLog' would be overwritten by merge. Cannot merge.
i guess i'm supposed to read all the man pages and become a git
expert, in order to be able to grab the latest release to compile
