Date: Sat, 19 Sep 2020 10:03:57 +0100 [thread overview] Message-ID: <CAE5ih78zCR0ZdHAjoxguUb3Y6KFkZcoxJjhS7rkbtZpremail@example.com> (raw) Maybe this is a FAQ, but I couldn't figure it out! I have a repo which has a couple of submodules. At some point in the past I deleted one of those submodules: git rm sub2 git add -u git commit -m 'Deleting sub2' git push origin ... ... more commits and pushes... Now I go and clone the head revision. This gives me a clone which has nothing present in .git/modules/sub2. login on some other machine git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:thing cd thing ls .git/modules <sub2 not present> So when I go and checkout an old revision where sub2 is still around I get: git checkout oldrevision fatal: not a git repository: sub2/../.git/modules/sub2 What am I doing wrong? What set of commands do I need to use to ensure that this will always do the right thing? Thanks Luke
