Well, I'm tracking different foreign git repositories as submodules.
Those repositories which tracks different projects are not mine
therefore I can't save my own stuff directly in them. I need to
annotate some commits in each submodule.

One option would be to clone each repository in my own place, but I
though it would be simpler if I could store the anntotion in _my_
super project.

Thanks for your time.
