Subject: AW: Restoring detached HEADs after Git operations

Hello Stefan,

the use case is as follows:

The projects consists of circa 18 IP cores. Each IP core is represented by a Git repository. Think of an IP core as of a lonestanding DLL or SO file project. Each IP core references 2 submodules, which bring the verification environments for testing the IP core standalone.

These 18 IP cores are grouped to bigger IP cores, referencing the low-level IP cores and each again the 2 verification submodules. Finally, the main project references the bigger IP cores and again the 2 verification cores.

TOPLEVEL
  o- IP1
       o- UVVM
       o- VUnit
  o- IP2
       o- UVVM
       o- VUnit
  o- IP3
       o- UVVM
       o- VUnit
  o- IP4
       o- UVVM
       o- VUnit
       o- IP5
           o- UVVM
           o- VUnit
       o- IP6
           o- UVVM
           o- VUnit
       o- IP7
           o- UVVM
           o- VUnit
  o- IP8
       o- UVVM
       o- VUnit
       o- IP9
           o- UVVM
           o- VUnit
       o- IP10
           o- UVVM
           o- VUnit
  o- IP11
       o- UVVM
       o- VUnit
       o- IP9
           o- UVVM
           o- VUnit
       o- IP12
           o- UVVM
           o- VUnit
   o- UVVM
   o- VUnit

That's the simplified structure. I can't write more, because it's a closed source project. You can find other usecases e.g. in my other open source projects. E.g. The PoC-Library or The PicoBlaze-Library and the corresponding PoC-Examples repository.

Example: PoC
Pile of Cores includes 4 Git submodules and is itself an IP core library.
So PoC-Examples again references PoC. This looks like this tree:

PoC-Examples
  |- lib/
       o- PoC
            |- lib
                o- Cocotb
                o- OSVVM
                o- VUnit
                     o- .... OSVVM
                o- UVVM

The library VUnit itself already includes OSVVM as a library.

----------------------
Forcast:
I'll write a new question / idea about multiple equal submodules and the memory footprint soon...
Here is my original question posted on StackOverflow: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/44585425/how-to-reduce-the-memory-footprint-for-multiple-submodules-of-the-same-source
----------------------

Do you need more use cases?


Kind regards
    Patrick

ok, thanks for letting us know. I may re-prioritize the "reattach
HEAD" patches that I referenced earlier.
I would have hoped that additionally to the shell lines you'd have
given a good use case/summary.
