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

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, http://datalad.org, 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.

http://datasets.datalad.org 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
friends.

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,
