From: "W. Trevor King" <>

Comments on v7 seem to have petered out, so here's v8.  Changes since

* Series based on gitster/master instead of v1.8.0.
* In Documentation/config.txt, restored trailing line of
  submodule.<name>.update documentation, which I had accidentally
  removed in v7.
* In Documentation/git-submodule.txt, make --no-fetch example in the
  --remote description more general, following Phil's suggestion.
* In
  * Remove accidental "ges" line.
  * Use the submodule's default remote to determine which tracking
    branch to fetch.  In v7 I'd been using the superproject's default
  * In cmd_add(), use sm_name instead of sm_path to store the --branch
    option (catching up with 73b0898).

W. Trevor King (3):
  submodule: add get_submodule_config helper funtion
  submodule update: add --remote for submodule's upstream changes
  submodule add: If --branch is given, record it in .gitmodules
