The cool thing about using submodules it that it ties the version of the submodule to the repo it is included. So if I need to replace it with a specific version for another version I can do this within git and also replicate it to all machines. I haven't seen a way to checkout a specific commit with mr and only one config for multiple branches and machines. Kind regards, Andre -- Andre Klärner
