I messed up there. Yes, we need to fetch into a normal branch such that the logic of check_for_new_submodule_commits triggers no matter where it is on the remote. Your experiment below shows that we cannot fetch into FETCH_HEAD: > If that were true, I would expect that when this line: > > > git fetch --recurse-submodules --recurse-submodules-default on-demand origin refs/changes/2:refs/heads/my_branch && > > is replaced by this line: > > > git fetch --recurse-submodules --recurse-submodules-default on-demand origin refs/changes/2 && > > then things would still work.

I would call it a fake submodule then, and copy over the "No > entry in .gitmodules?" comment. "fake submodule" sounds like http://debuggable.com/posts/git-fake-submodules:4b563ee4-f3cc-4061-967e-0e48cbdd56cb which is what I think of when hearing fake submodules.
