I'm fairly new to git and struggling with submodules. I want set up a
git project for my dotfiles, using examples found on github. In
particular I want to start with a populated .gitmodules file. I
tried copying it into top level of my git project and running
git submodule init
git submodule update
Is there a way to start with an existing .gitmodules file? How?
