Today I played around a bit with git submodules and noticed
that the very handy configuration "submodule.recurse" is not
working for the git-clone command.
"git help config" tells me that submodule.recurse affects
all commands that have a --recurse-submodules option.
git-clone seems to be an exception which is also mentioned in
a workflow example in Documentation/gitsubmodules.txt that
# Unlike the other commands below clone still needs
# its own recurse flag:
git clone --recurse <URL> <directory>
So this seems to be a known issue. Is someone already
working on this or has a plan to do it? Or is there a reason
not doing this for git-clone but for git-pull?
