When a user of a project that uses Git says "try this version"
without telling you on which branch that version appears, that
statement typically means that anybody who clones that project
would get the commit, i.e.

    $ git clone https://github.com/.../openbsc
    $ cd openbsc
    $ git checkout 7f100c9712de

This will give you a checkout without being on any named branch,
which would be sufficient for you to build; if you want further work
on top of that commit, you might want to do the last step more like

    $ git checkout -b mybranch 7f100c9712de

If you are not developing at all, then starting at this URL


and clicking around, you should be able to find this URL


which would presumably give you a Zip archive that contains the
files in that particular commit.
