Thanks for your answer Thomas,

However this is not what I am looking for.

git-submodules  is nice when you have stable components or third party 
libraries where you can easily choose the version you want to update for 
different components. However, IFIK, it does not allow you to do changes in 
these repositories (commits, etc.), repotool from google allow you to do 
that, it basically clones different repo for you based on a so-called 
manifest file (xml file with repos information, url, etc.).

However I am wondering if it is possible to point to a given TAG or commit 
on the configuration parameters of repo tool.

If anyone knows, a small example will be very helpful.
