           Submodules allow foreign repositories to be embedded within a dedicated
           subdirectory of the source tree, always pointed at a particular commit.
           They are not to be confused with remotes, which are meant mainly for
           branches of the same project; submodules are meant for different
           projects you would like to make part of your source tree, while the
           history of the two projects still stays completely independent and you
           cannot modify the contents of the submodule from within the main
           project. If you want to merge the project histories and want to treat
           the aggregated whole as a single project from then on, you may want to
           add a remote for the other project and use the subtree merge strategy,
           instead of treating the other project as a submodule. Directories that
           come from both projects can be cloned and checked out as a whole if you
           choose to go that route.
           Submodules are composed from a so-called gitlink tree entry in the main
           repository that refers to a particular commit object within the inner
           repository that is completely separate. A record in the .gitmodules
           file at the root of the source tree assigns a logical name to the
           submodule and describes the default URL the submodule shall be cloned
           from. The logical name can be used for overriding this URL within your
           local repository configuration (see submodule init).
           This command will manage the tree entries and contents of the
           gitmodules file for you, as well as inspect the status of your
           submodules and update them. When adding a new submodule to the tree,
           the add subcommand is to be used. However, when pulling a tree
           containing submodules, these will not be checked out by default; the
           init and update subcommands will maintain submodules checked out and at
           appropriate revision in your working tree. You can briefly inspect the
           up-to-date status of your submodules using the status subcommand and
           get a detailed overview of the difference between the index and
           checkouts using the summary subcommand.


               Add the given repository as a submodule at the given path to the
               changeset to be committed next to the current project: the current
               project is termed the "superproject".
               is created by cloning from the named URL. If <path> does exist and
               is already a valid git repository, then this is added to the
               changeset without cloning. This second form is provided to ease
               creating a new submodule from scratch, and presumes the user will
               later push the submodule to the given URL.
               In either case, the given URL is recorded into .gitmodules for use
               by subsequent users cloning the superproject. If the URL is given
               relative to the superproject's repository, the presumption is the
               superproject and submodule repositories will be kept together in
               the same relative location, and only the superproject's URL needs
               to be provided: git-submodule will correctly locate the submodule
               using the relative URL in .gitmodules.
               Show the status of the submodules. This will print the SHA-1 of the
               currently checked out commit for each submodule, along with the
               submodule path and the output of git describe for the SHA-1. Each
               SHA-1 will be prefixed with - if the submodule is not initialized
               and + if the currently checked out submodule commit does not match
               the SHA-1 found in the index of the containing repository. This
               command is the default command for git submodule.
               If --recursive is specified, this command will recurse into nested
               submodules, and show their status as well.
               Initialize the submodules, i.e. register each submodule name and
               url found in .gitmodules into .git/config. The key used in
               .git/config is submodule.$name.url. This command does not alter
               existing information in .git/config. You can then customize the
               submodule clone URLs in .git/config for your local setup and
               proceed to git submodule update; you can also just use git
               submodule update --init without the explicit init step if you do
               not intend to customize any submodule locations.
               Update the registered submodules, i.e. clone missing submodules and
               checkout the commit specified in the index of the containing
               repository. This will make the submodules HEAD be detached unless
               --rebase or --merge is specified or the key submodule.$name.update
               is set to rebase or merge.
               If the submodule is not yet initialized, and you just want to use
               the setting as stored in .gitmodules, you can automatically
               initialize the submodule with the --init option.
               If --recursive is specified, this command will recurse into the
               registered submodules, and update any nested submodules within.
               Show commit summary between the given commit (defaults to HEAD) and
               superproject. Any submodules defined in the superproject but not
               checked out are ignored by this command. Unless given --quiet,
               foreach prints the name of each submodule before evaluating the
               command. If --recursive is given, submodules are traversed
               recursively (i.e. the given shell command is evaluated in nested
               submodules as well). A non-zero return from the command in any
               submodule causes the processing to terminate. This can be
               overridden by adding || : to the end of the command.
               As an example, git submodule foreach ?echo $path 'git rev-parse
               HEAD'? will show the path and currently checked out commit for each
               Synchronizes submodules? remote URL configuration setting to the
               value specified in .gitmodules. This is useful when submodule URLs
               change upstream and you need to update your local repositories
               "git submodule sync" synchronizes all submodules while "git
               submodule sync -- A" synchronizes submodule "A" only.


           -q, --quiet
               Only print error messages.
           -b, --branch
               Branch of repository to add as submodule.
               This option is only valid for status and summary commands. These
               commands typically use the commit found in the submodule HEAD, but
               with this option, the commit stored in the index is used instead.
               This option is only valid for the summary command. This command
               compares the commit in the index with that in the submodule HEAD
               when this option is used.
           -n, --summary-limit
               This option is only valid for the summary command. Limit the
               summary size (number of commits shown in total). Giving 0 will
               disable the summary; a negative number means unlimited (the
               default). This limit only applies to modified submodules. The size
               is always limited to 1 for added/deleted/typechanged submodules.
           -N, --no-fetch
               This option is only valid for the update command. Don't fetch new
               objects from the remote site.
               This option is only valid for the update command. Merge the commit
           --reference <repository>
               This option is only valid for add and update commands. These
               commands sometimes need to clone a remote repository. In this case,
               this option will be passed to the git-clone(1) command.
               NOTE: Do not use this option unless you have read the note for git-
               clone(1)?s --reference and --shared options carefully.
               This option is only valid for foreach, update and status commands.
               Traverse submodules recursively. The operation is performed not
               only in the submodules of the current repo, but also in any nested
               submodules inside those submodules (and so on).
               Paths to submodule(s). When specified this will restrict the
               command to only operate on the submodules found at the specified
               paths. (This argument is required with add).


           When initializing submodules, a .gitmodules file in the top-level
           directory of the containing repository is used to find the url of each
           submodule. This file should be formatted in the same way as
           $GIT_DIR/config. The key to each submodule url is
           "submodule.$name.url". See gitmodules(5) for details.
