[GSoC] Update: Week 0 (Community Bonding Period)


Git submodule subcommands are currently implemented by using shell script
'git-submodule.sh'. There are several reasons why we'll prefer not to
use the shell script. My project intends to convert the subcommands into
C code, thus making them builtins. This will increase Git's portability
and hence the efficiency of working with the git-submodule commands.

As proposed, till 15th May I mostly spend my time updating my information
about the codebase.

Along with this, I even spend some time working on the patch:
submodule: port subcommand foreach from shell to C[2]
I even updated my patch by sending v3, and adding a test[3] to
the existing ones. Currently, the patch passes all the test,
except the newly added one.


As proposed, I would be starting to code officially from 16th May
(tomorrow), and hence have plans for working as follows:

Improvise submodule: port subcommand foreach from shell to C patch,
as suggested and also work on getting the newly added test passed.
I have recently received review from Brandon Williams <bmwill@xxxxxxxxxx>
and my mentor Stefan Beller <sbeller@xxxxxxxxxx> which I am really
thankful for, and wish to implement these suggestions as soon as

Adding to this, I am also waiting for the community's review on the
issue regarding the $path variable, which I added along with the
patch[2]. This issue is also highlighted by the new test[3] added.
Any suggestion would be of huge help to work further on getting
all the tests clear.

Along with this, I plan to port submodule subcommand status.
This required first porting of the function set_name_rev from
shell to C, and then later port the subcommand.
