Hello Olivier,

In git you generally check out "the whole thing".  The commands to get
the 1.12 branch would look as follows.

git clone https://code.wireshark.org/review/wireshark
git checkout master-1.12

That will put you on the 1.12 branch.  After that `git pull` should
update you to the latest 1.12 sources.

Note that that is for the development code.  If you want exactly what
was in the release run `git checkout $tag` where $tag is the tag of the
release you want.  For example 'v1.12.0-rc2'.  You can switch to
different releases by running `git fetch` to download the new code and
re-running `git checkout` with the new tag.

Also note that if you are doing development you probably don't want to
use a tag but instead base your work of an active branch (probably master).

Hope that helps,
