Subject: [PATCH] new-workdir: Never try to recurse into submodules on the initial checkout.
Date: Mon, 14 Jan 2019 12:27:02 -0500
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The new workdir is empty before the checkout, so attempts to recurse into

Signed-off-by: Marc Branchaud <>

git-new-workdir script, but it fails if my config has

With this patch, the checkout succeeds and the workdir has empty submodules,
which is the script's normal behaviour.
