Subject: [PATCH/RFC] add--interactive: ignore all internal submodule changes
Date: Wed, 10 Jan 2018 18:06:43 +0700
Message-ID: <> (raw)

For 'add -i' and 'add -p' the only action we can take on a dirty
submodule entry (from the superproject perspective) is its SHA-1. The
content changes inside do not matter, at least until interactive add has
--recurse-submodules or something.

Ignore all dirty changes to reduce the questions 'add -i' and 'add -p'
throw at the user when submodules are dirty.
