I'm starting out with the Plutus Pioneer Program at https://github.com/input-output-hk/plutus-pioneer-program. One of the first steps is to clone the Plutus repo https://github.com/input-output-hk/plutus.git from the tag specified in the cabal.project

tag: 3746610e53654a1167aeb4c6294c6096d16b0502.

This doesn't appear to be a tag on the Plutus repo. Is it still possible to get the correct Plutus version for the Pioneer Program code?

With tag: 3746610e53654a1167aeb4c6294c6096d16b0502 in cabal.project they refer to a commit, not a git tag.

You can find it here: https://github.com/input-output-hk/plutus/commit/3746610e53654a1167aeb4c6294c6096d16b0502

So to get the correct version of the repo, you can check out the git commit:

git checkout 3746610e53654a1167aeb4c6294c6096d16b0502

    I don't think I have configured anything special in git, but I can git checkout with a shortened hash: git checkout 3746610e - less frightening :-) Jun 17, 2021 at 0:01
