git-subtree is an alternative to git submodules. It makes it easier
to use git's "subtree" merge strategy, and also provides a "split"
operation to do the opposite (extracting a subtree back into the
parent project) so you can go back and forth.
It's been awhile since I made an actual official release, so I just
tagged v0.3. You can find it at
Main changes in this version:
- a new 'git subtree pull' command to complement 'git subtree merge'
- improvements to docs and license notices
- various bugfixes.
Jakub Suder has also written a new tutorial on how to use git-subtree:
git-subtree appears to be gaining in popularity (it how has 94
followers on github, and people are obviously using it enough to
submit patches). Thoughts about whether (and how) to submit it for
inclusion into core git are welcome.

Oops, forgot a COPYING file. It's GPLv2.
Weird, I forgot to have 'make test' call test.sh.

Jakub's changes broke the progress message slightly.
