The transition from submodule.<path>.* to submodule.<name>.* happened in 73b0898d (Teach "git submodule add" the --name option, 2012-09-30), which landed in v1.8.1-rc0 on 2012-12-03. The first submodule.<path>.branch reference landed a short time later in b9289227 (submodule add: If --branch is given, record it in .gitmodules, 2012-12-19), and I was probably just not aware of 73b0898d. The second submodule.<path>.branch reference landed in 23d25e48 (submodule: explicit local branch creation in module_clone, 2014-01-26), and is just a copy paste error. This commit updates both references to the current submodule.<name>.branch.
Reported-by: Junio C Hamano <gits...@pobox.com> Signed-off-by: W. Trevor King <wk...@tremily.us> --- This patch is against master, because 23d25e48 hasn't landed in maint yet. If you want, I can split this into two patches, one against maint fixing the b9289227 typo and another against master fixing the 23d25e48 typo.
