Just out of curiosity, why are you trying to avoid submodules?

I haven't used subtree that much however how do you commit to upstream?
AFAIK every commit to the subtree must be done in the subtree branch and
then merged back to the "superproject"-branch with a subtree merge.

You don't. A subtree is a subtree in your git-repo and is therefore a
part of your repository. When you're using subtree that project will be
a part of you project.

git-subtree is a part of git, located in the contrib section. When your
software distribution choose to distribute that with your git-package
is not up to the git project to decide but something you need to ask
your package maintainer.

If you're asking when git-subtree will move from contrib/ to core git, I
don't know. That's a decision for Junio. I would argue that it shouldn't
because submodules can do everything that subtrees are good at and
git.git should focus on doing one solution well instead of doing the
same thing in two bad ways. However since git.git already uses a
subtree-like style for gitk, git-gui, etc.  it doesn't seem like Junio
agrees with me on this point.

Is this really something to have in e-mails to a public list? Some lists
won't accept this type of e-mails, or simply just ignore you.
