Hi Alex,

By default, cerbero uses the following repository:

And it uses the branch named:

For gstreamer recipes we also include the upstream repository for
convenience, but don't use it for the build.

So for gst-plugins-bad it will use:
git:// (branch sdk-0.10.23)

You can force a particular commit adding the "commit" attribute to the recipe:
commit = 'some_tag_or_branch_or_commit_hash'
