Agreed. Since 'git checkout' already exists and 'git checkout --recurse-submodules' is close [1,2], I think that means we should drop this and start arguing about adjusting 'git checkout --recurse-submodules' to checkout branches as well ;). > Also, in my proposal, 'git submodule [tobedecided] --attach' would > also merge orphaned commits by default, and 'checkout' is not about > merge. And that's good. Bailing with “you have orphaned commits, which you should integrate them with $some_integration_command before checking out a different branch” is better than having overlapping responsibilities between the checkout command and the integration command.
