I'm working on some rails code. I build a plugin (subdirectory) for a
project tracked in git (using my own remote repository). The code is
all in the Project repository. But now, I realized I need the plugin
in other projects and so now I want to make it into a submodule.
I understand the basics of submodules and even use a lot of Rails
plugins as submodules via github, but I don't quite get the best way
to turn an existing directory of code into a submodule? If I have:
~/project/ => my rails project
~/project/vendor/plugins/foo/ => my plugin that I want to turn into
and I've got "project" referenced to: mygitrepo.myhost.com:/var/git/
what comes next?
I appreciate any steps or URLs to docs/blogs that would help. Thanks!
