I am a design automation engineer supporting 200+ designers who use git for
hardware design. We also use the submodule feature where we can have quite
complex hierarchy’s with 10+ layers. We have experience issues with re-use
of design projects was we move from one project derivative to another due
to the complexity of the hierarchy along with lack of discipline (using
absolute paths in .gitmodule files). To enforce more discipline I am
currently working on a pre-commit hook to check the integrity of .gitmodule
files. I would be interested in seeing how other users in the community
find submodules for large scale projects and if there are any best known
methods for using them.
