Yeah, there is some work left, but Shourya said he was interested in continuing to work on it. > To be clear, > > - there's 'add', whose conversion is currently stalled  Yeah, but it hasn't been stalled for a long time, and sometimes it takes time after the GSoC or Outreachy period for former GSoC students or Outreachy interns to resume their work. > - there's 'update', which still has a decent amount of code  > in the shell script. > - we still have to complete the conversion completely converting > moving the rest of the bits from `git-submodule.sh` to C which is > mostly just the option parsing.

Yeah, without 'add' we would have enough related issues for another project. I would prefer though that we wait for at least 3 months without any progress before suggesting them as a project. That's what we usually do and I think it's the right thing to do.
