Subject: in case you want a use-case with lots of submodules

Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi All,

On a recent trip I've listened to the git minutes podcast episode and
got excited to hear  Stefan Beller (CCed just in case) describing
ongoing work on submodules mechanism.  I got excited, since e.g.
performance improvements would be of great benefit to us too.

In our project,, git submodules is the basic
mechanism to bring multiple "datasets" (mix of git and git-annex'ed
repositories)  under the same roof so we could non-ambiguously
version them all at any level. ATM provides quite a sizeable (ATM 370
repositories, up to 4 levels deep) hierarchy of git/git-annex
repositories all tied together via git submodules mechanism.  And as the
collection grows, interactions with it become slower, so additional
options (such as --ignore-submodules=dirty  to status) become our

So I thought to share this as a use-case happen you need more
motivation or just a real-case test-bed for your work.  And thank
you again for making Git even Greater.

P.S. Please CCme in your replies (if any), I am not on the list

With best regards,
