[Pulp-list] [devel] git submodules

One of the big points of convenience with having the python packages under one repo is the ability to make one pull request that touches multiple packages. This is quite common, for example something as simple as adding a constant to the common package. Would we lose that ability if we started using git submodules?

What if we used git submodules to put each Python package we have in its own git repository, and then the "pulp" repo just brings them together for convenience? This way we could do something along the lines of this:

$ pip install -e http://github.com/pulp/pulp_rpm_plugins

Meanwhile, we could continue having the meta-repo that we have now that brings these submodules together for convenience.

What do you think?
