To build your own identical copies of these bundles from source code, check out the official repository and use git tag [geshifilter-code]<a href="https://gitweb.torproject.org/builders/tor-browser-bundle.git/tag/22456…] (commit [geshifilter-code]<a href="https://gitweb.torproject.org/builders/tor-browser-bundle.git/commit/49…]).
These instructions should explain things from there. If you notice any differences from the official bundles, I would love to hear about it!
