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). > And if it's not, may I contribute this feature? -- Philip
