Having cloned drupal from the git repository using
git clone --branch 7.x http://git.drupal.org/project/drupal.git
I noticed that I'm actually running 7.9-dev when what I want to be running is the most recent stable. Is there a git repository or branch that I can pull from to run the most recent stable release? I've seen references to git.drupal.org/project-stable/drupal.git around the net, but that doesn't seem to be a valid repository anymore.
