Hello,

I hope that this question is not off topic off this mailing list but I 
haven't found any better place to ask.

I use various versions of the linux kernel which I compile from source. I 
decided to get rid of all my source tar-balls and clone the git repository 
of the linux kernel.  
http://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git 
seems  for me to be the right repository to clone.

The oldest Linux version I use is version 2.6.30.10 which can be downloaded 
from http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/linux-2.6.30.10.tar.bz2 .

I now tried to checkout a branch in my local repository which is based on 
this version. 
I looked at the tags and noticed that only the major releases have a tag in 
the master branch.


 git tag -l
.
v2.6.30
v2.6.30-rc1
v2.6.30-rc2
v2.6.30-rc3
v2.6.30-rc4
v2.6.30-rc5
v2.6.30-rc6
v2.6.30-rc7
v2.6.30-rc8
.

I am new to git and somehow lost in this big repository. What are the right 
techniques to checkout/find version 2.6.30.10 in this repository? 

thanks for your help.

Martin
