Subject: git push recurse.submodules behavior changed in 2.13
Date: Sat, 27 May 2017 09:31:15 -0400
Message-ID: <CAE5=+KX57KM+6n9NpePw9KYPXFy7UH-WRgSwaJDnvRofYFXm7Q@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

Hi all,

It looks like the git push recurse-submodules behavior has changed.
Currently with 2.13 you cannot run "git push
--recurse-submodules=on-demand" if the parent repo is on a different
branch than the sub repos, e.g. parent repo is on "develop" and
sub-repo on "master". I created a test that can be found here [1].

A bisect shows that the change to propagate refspec [2] to the
submodules is the culprit. imho this is an undesired change in
behavior. I looked at the code but couldn't see an easy way to fix
this issue without breaking the feature mentioned above. The only
option I can think of is to control the refspec propagation behavior
using a flag, e.g. "--propagate-refspecs" or add another
recurse-submodules option, e.g. "--recurse-submodules=propagate"

What do you all think ?
