Here it is. Changes since v4: * Remove `update --branch` in favor of the new `update --remote` logic as mentioned above. * Optional config overrides for submodule.<name>.branch (as suggested by Jens) * Save --branch as submodule.<name>.branch instead of requiring --local-branch. * Restructure doc edits. I'm a lot happier with this two-patch proposal. The first patch implements --remote and documents submodule.<name>.branch. The second patch just gives you a convenient way to set it. I haven't heard from anyone other than Heiko recently about the --branch/--remote-branch choice, so I returned to the simpler --branch side effect storage from v1. I'd be happy to submit v6 with explicit --remote-branch recording if desired. W.
