I don't now if you are planning to use gerrit, but in our case, git-annex
didn't work well at all. See  below.
We had to go with git submodules, which has a way better support in gerrit,
and better support for handling branches. We're also adding support for tag
in .gitmodules, so we can rebuild a tree of all submodules from the
configuration baseline prior to release, or simply lock the revision of
submodules not changing often, like 3rd party modules.
Just my 2 cents.
