Need to backtrack the feeds update to a specified date

I want to replicate an environment of a specified date. Started with the git clone of the OpenWRT and check out of the required branch specifying the specific date. Next steps is to update and install the feeds.

Is there a way where I can have the feeds back tracked to a specified date?

$ find feeds/ -type d -name .git

Then in each

git fetch --unshallow

select the revision you want (remembering that author date is shown in the default git log formats, not commit date) and check them out. See also feeds.conf.default which, for releases, may specify a specific commit hash rather than a branch.

./scrips/feeds install -a

then should get things ready to proceed.

Under packages , it seems to be all mixed up when we start to track with dates.
If you see below ( pulled out a sample git log for example), commit goes from July, June and then to October. Trying to understand how to get the commit out for a exact date. ( Say a month back)

django-ranged-response: update packaging format + add python3 variant

This change also updates the maintainer email to, as
requested on a different change.

Not updating deps here, since that will be done in the next changeset that
will convert packages to the Python[3] packaging format.
