.gitmodules file, located in the top-level directory of a git
working tree, is a text file with a syntax matching the requirements
The file contains one subsection per submodule, and the subsection value is the name of the submodule. Each submodule section also contains the following required keys:
Defines the path, relative to the top-level directory of the git working tree, where the submodule is expected to be checked out. The path name must not end with a
/. All submodule paths must be unique within the .gitmodules file.
Defines an url from where the submodule repository can be cloned.
Consider the following .gitmodules file:
[submodule "libfoo"] path = include/foo url = git://foo.com/git/lib.git
[submodule "libbar"] path = include/bar url = git://bar.com/git/lib.git
This defines two submodules,
libbar. These are expected to
be checked out in the paths include/foo and include/bar, and for both
submodules an url is specified which can be used for cloning the submodules.
