Re: how to git gnumeric

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 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://

$ 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
