Re: GSoC 2017




Decided to rewrite module_clone to use connect_work_tree_and_git_dir
as my microproject by suggestion of Stefan Bellar.

It seems that connect_work_tree_and_git_dir needs to be slightly changed
to deal with submodules. Because path to config file for submodules lies
not directly in .git directory we need to know whether the path is
submodule or not. Can I use submodule_from_path to determine this?
I mean what if NULL result also indicates error sometimes?

Another possible solution is to pass the flag indicating
that path is submodule or not. But I think this solution is bad.
