some misc. notes about submodules

See also some older notes: DarcsConversion#Theperspectiveonsubmodules

  • based on the current access patterns, a few repositories are modified often (specifically, ghc.git and testsuite.git are often updated in a inter-dependent way); most repositories aren't updated for several weeks; therefore some of the issues outlined with the usability of submodules might have less weight here.
  • Simple migration plan:
    • Fold testsuite.git into ghc.git, as they are strongly inter-dependent. nofib.git and base.git are two other candidates for being folded into ghc.git.
    • All other add-on repositories should be converted into Git submodules.
