The reason for a separate module was because we add quite some lines of code for it. $ wc -l submodule.c 1068 submodule.c $ wc -l submodule-config.c 435 submodule-config.c Because of this I would like to keep the c-files separate. The header simply came from that. It is possible to use them individually but it is very likely that we will always use both. At the moment all occurrences of submodule-config.h also have submodule.h. The other way around it is not that way. I like it to have a header per c-module since you directly know where to look for definitions. Also the config topic can be considered a separate subsystem for submodules. And for me it feels that way. If we want to make it easier for the user it probably makes sense to move the declarations into submodule.h But then how should we document it? As api-submodule.txt? I do not have a strong opinion either way. I like it in the current shape but if you convince me it makes more sense with one header, I would also be fine with it.
