I'm very interested in your feedback as a first time submodule user,
what you wrote above makes sense and explains why you did that patch
(and it would have been nice to read some of it in the commit message
;-). What information did you expect to get from a "git submodule
show" which isn't already provided by "git status" and "git diff"
(especially as they give you some information the "git submodule"
commands don't)?
