Yes, not sure why the emails were not linked together, I specified the
in-reply-to mesage id when I "git format-patch"-ed the patches.

I wasn't actually planning to squash them in a single patch, will do,
but I guess for now it helps to focus the discussion around the test
since the implementation is still lacking, see below 2 lines comment.

Thanks for the pointer, I only looked at the post-failure state after
adding --debug -i --verbose, but having "test_pause" to stop and
inspect the interim stage should help a lot with debugging.

Sure, will do.

After looking at other tests I was under the impression that the setup
phase (e.g. creating the "server" side repos) of the test was done in
the main context, while the test case (i.e. the client side, or what
the user would do) is in subshells.

Nice.

I wasn't aware of that, it seems there are some inconsistencies,
including in the modified test:

eddy@feodora:~/usr/src/git/t$ grep '> ' -c t* 2>/dev/null | grep -v
':0$' | grep 7406
t7406-submodule-update.sh:24
eddy@feodora:~/usr/src/git/t$ grep '> ' -c t* 2>/dev/null | grep -v
':0$' | wc -l
325

I suspect that a minor patch correcting these inconsistencies would be
faily fast reviewed adn accepted, of course, disconnected from this
modification.

Yes, I was trying to replicate the redox-os case which has this structure:

redox-os (master branch)
   + rust (@some commit on a non-default)
          + src/llvm (@some commit on a non-default branch)

This section is making sure the b2 branch has other content than the
default one and setting the expectation for level2 submodule branch,
later.

thanks for the pointer, will change that since my purpose for the
commit was to make sure default branch (master) and b1 branch are
different

correct

I think that from my tests I saw that without it the submodule wasn't
there, but I might be mistaken, will check.

exactly, since the desired behaviour is to have in the nested
submodule the b2 branch.
I guess I could have added the level2 submodule@master on l1's master
branch, but I didn't see much point in that since it should be enough
now.

It might make more sense if master and b2, and, respectively master
and l1 have diverging histories, but for now that is probably overkill
and it will make sense in the context of shallow cloning of
submodules, which I haven't yet tackled except presenting the idea.

My intention was to have super5 -> submodl1b1@b1 -> submodl2b2@b2 on
the "server" side.
But are you saying I just implemented super5 -> sbmodl1b1@master due
to the previous master checkout in submodl1b1?

I created it in the first step of the test with the intention to have
super5 as the "server" and "super" as the client clone.

As a general idea for a test, does it look sane?

Do you think I should I start with a just one level of submodule with
a non-default branch (super -> l1@b1), or it this OK?
In my view, having 2 levels makes sure the recursive part is also
addressed and verified.
