I'm not sure when or if the patches will make it in.  Junio's
weekly "What's cooking..." email has asked for "Comments?" about
them for the past several weeks, but I have yet to see
anyone actually comment about them.

Searching throught the last couple of years of mailing list
archives for "subtree" reveals a general lack of a active
maintainer(s) to help review and improve patches for "git
subtree".  Given the general lack of help and feedback, it is
understandable that Junio has largely limited inclusion of
subtree patches to trivially obvious bug fixes.
