Figured I'd forward this on to the list- it could strike up a discussion.

I've looked at git-submodules, but it is quite new, and not all that
lightweight as each submodule has its own .git directory.

Do you think git submodules could be useful or relevant considering
the 'Killing CVS' topic? In terms of checking out individual packages.


"Large projects are often composed of smaller, self-contained modules.
For example, an embedded Linux distribution's source tree would
include every piece of software in the distribution with some local
modifications; a movie player might need to build against a specific,
known-working version of a decompression library; several independent
programs might all share the same build scripts."
