re: Git Submodules Revisited VIEW POST

re: What's keeping me from using submodules mainly is not being able to reference commits by tags. It may be viewed as sheer laziness, but tags denote ...

When you checkout a project's commit, you also checkout the dependency commits at that point - the commit of the submodule is part of the version history of the parent.

But a git tag of the parent doesn't create a tag in the child repositories - that's probably a good thing, though.


That's something different than I had in mind. The thing is, when I want to manage or view versions of submodules, I'd like to use their respective version tags.
