    OK, how to I set up a submodule? 

    As far as I can tell from "Version Control with Git", I should be able 
    to: 

    1. Write .gitmodules with the appropriate configuration values.  In my 
    case: 

    [submodule "T9"] 
            path = T9 
            url = /home/worley/T9 
Is this the right form for the 'URL'. It just looks like a directory path. Try 
to compare it with the result of the 'submodule add'.

  2. Execute "git submodule init" to copy these config values into 
  .git/config, thus making the submodule known to Git. 

  3. Execute "git submodule update" to cause Git to set up the directory 
  ./T9; in this situation, by cloning /home/worley/T9 into it. 

  However, the "git submodule" commands do nothing and produce no error 
  messages.  (Which is crappy coding!)  So I'm not doing the right 
  thing, and have no guidance as to where I'm making a mistake. 




  I get the same behavior here. However, when using the approach described in 
http://git-scm.com/book/en/Git-Tools-Submodules - with git submodule add ..., 
it works.


  Reading in the docs about what the init and update commands do, I was also a 
bit suprised that it didn't work.. But reading further up, it says:


  "When adding a new submodule to the tree, the add subcommand is to be used. 
However, when pulling a tree containing submodules, these will not be checked 
out by
         default; the init and update subcommands will maintain submodules 
checked out and at appropriate revision in your working tree."
