It should. All new code recursing into submodules should not use --recursive but always --recurse-submodules, as --recursive means different things for different commands (the only exception being "git submodule", as --recursive is obvious here, and "git clone" for backward compatibility reasons). But I really like what these patches are aiming at. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
