Dear all,

I am trying to avoid using git submodules and thus I am testing if git subtree fit my needs.
I have a set of sub-projects linked to a main-project.

Git subtree is very convenient to get all the sub-projects into the main-project directory tree
and to send back sub-project commits to the corresponding repository.
But I don't understand the work flow very well.

I can add a subtree with a given prefix and pull/push my commits to the repository, but how do I do to pull/push commits from the main-project to the corresponding repository
avoiding sub-projects to be sent?

An other question I have is when will be subtree included in git packages.
I had to compile git from sources in order to get this feature.
