Subject: [PATCH] diff: allow --recurse-submodules as an synonym for --submodule
Date: Wed,  5 Sep 2018 15:58:28 -0700
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Many commands have flags to recurse into submodules, which is named
--recurse-submodules. The diff family also has a submodule recursion flag,
but that is named differently. Add a synonym --recurse-submodules, which
means the same as the --submodule flag, such that across all git commands
supporting submodules we have the --recurse-submodules flag available.
