Great, thanks for merging, Olivier!
Regarding submodules, it seems that it was improved very recently, actually
- tracking branch tips as submodules was added in the latest stable version
1.8.2 (available through brew on OS X, but the latest stable Ubuntu still
packages 1.8.1 ). It probably needs some more time to mature. Quick
instructions on how to track submodules as branches instead of specific
commits are explained in .
But anyway, after playing with submodules for a while, it does actually
seem rather clumsy - even after setting everything up to use the master
branch in , it's complaining about the other folders under bindings/
(which I didn't even touch) when I do a `git submodule update`
No submodule mapping found in .gitmodules for path 'bindings/jvlc'
