    SubjectHow in tarnation do I git v2.6.16-rc2? hg died and I still don't git git
    I'm trying to git a copy of Linus's tree, checked out only up
    through revision v2.6.16-rc2, so that I can lay down Andrew's
    latest broken-out quilt patch set for 2.6.16-rc2-mm1 on top of it.

    I had been using hg (mercurial) to keep a current copy of Linus's
    tree, and to make hg clones at each 2.6.*-rc*, to which I would apply
    Andrew's various 2.6.*-rc*-mm*.

    But the hg tree seems to have died on me, and I still don't git git.

    I can do:

    git pull rsync://rsync.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git

    and get Linus's tree as of the latest change, and I can do a "git log",
    and see that I want a clone (in the hg sense, not the git sense) of
    this tree as of:

    commit 826eeb53a6f264842200d3311d69107d2eb25f5e
    Author: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@g5.osdl.org>
    Date: Thu Feb 2 22:03:08 2006 -0800

    Linux v2.6.16-rc2

    Once I have that clone of Linus's tree at this revision, I am happy
    using quilt to push Andrew's 2.6.16-rc2-mm1 that I ftp'd from:

    ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.16-rc2/2.6.16-rc2-mm1/

    on top of this.

    But how in tarnation do I git a checked out copy/clone/whatever of
    Linus's tree that only has the changes up through revision v2.6.16-rc2
    (that doesn't include changes since then)?
