is there a way, how to pull/clone (somehow) only commits of one, and only
1) Lets say i have 3 branches in one submodule. Master(commits 1,2,3,4) ,
Project1(commits 1,2,3,4,5) , Project2(commits 1,2,3,4,6,7,8).
2) I am starting with Project3 and wanna to get submodule Master branch
only -> "git submodule add --only_specific_branch_commits
3) Now i will look into submodule, and "git branch -v" will show me only
master, and as well "git branch -vr" show me only origin/master ...
And if i will try to git cherry-pick 5 on Master branch-> where 5 is commit
of Project1 only, there wont be any entry in history or so -> so it fails
