Can anybody tell me how I can git clone and older version of the copy_move extension for use with Radiant 0.6.9? I am not up with all the ins and outs
of git enough to figure out how to use previous revisions.

I would suggest checking out an older revision of the extension into a new git branch. That way you can keep the up-to-date version (for 0.7) in its own branch, so that if you upgrade your site to 0.7 in the future, it is still there for you.

Here are the steps (note that 'co' is short for 'checkout', and 'br' for 'branch'. I have these set as aliases[1]):

        # from the home directory of your radiant site:
$ git clone git://github.com/pilu/radiant-copy-move.git vendor/ extensions/copy_move
        $ cd vendor/extensions/copy_move
        $ git log

This gives you a list of all commits, with their commit messages and 'sha' values. Find the commit that you want to revert back to (i.e. the commit prior to the one that breaks in 0.6.7). e.g.:

        commit b7d93af32fc8fbaa97611d0697ab33f606d2eef1
        Author: Andrea Franz <and...@gravityblast.com>
        Date:   Tue Dec 16 18:37:56 2008 +0100

the new radiant searches for regions under app/views/admin/pages instead of the old app/views/admin/page
        commit 79ee39addf4adabcf28fe77a8cb9cbf2338feda8
        Merge: a904fd3... 9f3dd2a...
        Author: Andrea Franz <and...@gravityblast.com>
        Date:   Tue Dec 16 18:33:43 2008 +0100
Merge branch 'master' of git://github.com/avonderluft/radiant- copy-move into avonderluft/master

If commit 'b7d93a' introduces changes that break in 0.6.7, you want to use the commit before it: '79ee39'. So check it out:

        $ git co 79ee39
        Note: moving to "79ee39" which isn't a local branch
        If you want to create a new branch from this checkout, you may do so
        (now or later) by using -b with the checkout command again. Example:
          git checkout -b <new_branch_name>
HEAD is now at 79ee39a... Merge branch 'master' of git://github.com/ avonderluft/radiant-copy-move into avonderluft/master

Now when you list the branches, you should see:

        $ git br
        * (no branch)

When you checked out the old revision, you were prompted with instructions on how to turn it into a branch of its own. Something like:

        $ git co -b pre-0.7

Now, when you list branches:

        $ git br
        * pre-0.7

You can switch between your branches using `git co <branch-name>`. e.g.

        $ git co master
        $ git br
        * master
        $ git co pre-0.7
        $ git br
        * pre-0.7

I hope that helps.
