This may be a confusion about how some large projects use sub-modules 
and are now able to follow the developments within a sub-module branch.

The original sub-module mechanism is still available where the 
sub-module is locked at a specific commit object id's hash i.e. a 
specific 'library' version of that sub-module (in that context assumed 
to be rarely changing).
