Official repos are at "fairwaves" user. Repos in my github has more
experimental branches, which you most likely don't need at this time.

git clone https://github.com/fairwaves/openbts-2.8.git
(branch umtrx)

git clone https://github.com/fairwaves/openbts-2.8.git
(branch fairwaves/umtrx)

The latest GnuRadio from 3.6 series works well for us.

Above versions should work.

No, that's not possible.
But given the fact that OpenBTS doesn't require to be installed, it's
easy to have two copies for different configurations.

That said, I recommend you to look into using Osmocom software instead
of OpenBTS or in addition to OpenBTS, which is more stable and is
evolving very fast:
