You could create a tarball with all source code by running the following 
command *from the top-level dir*:

    git archive -o tar.gz --prefix=wireshark-1.10.6/ wireshark-1.10.6 > 
wireshark-1.10.6.tar.gz

(if you run this from a subdirectory, then you will only include files 
starting from the subdirectory.)

This would be similar to `svn export`. If you have a git repository and want 
to merge the changes from 1.10.6, use something like this:

    # assume your private work is on a branch "private-branch"
    git checkout private-branch
    # merge changes
    git merge wireshark-1.10.6
    # equivalent because Wireshark has TWO tags for the same commit:
    #git merge v1.10.6
