Hello Philip

Thanks for the update. I created the bare repo first (*GitRepoCreation.jpeg 
is the first screen shot*) and then I added a submodule (*submodule 
creation.jpeg is the second screen shot*). So before dealing with sub 
modules, we need to do at least one commit to the corresponding repo which 
we are going to add as a submodule right?
