If you run the following you will see the rc3 tag:

$ git tag | grep 4.*rc

What you can do is create a new local branch pointing at samba-4.0.0rc3
like this:

$ git checkout -b v4.0.0rc3 samba-4.0.0rc3
Switched to a new branch 'v4.0.0rc3'

That should (unless I am mistaken) be identical to the tarball.

If you want to switch back to the v4-0-test branch again later, just do

$ git checkout v4-0-test
