Provide submodule overview
What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Have a project containing several submodules spread around different folders
- Try to get an overview which submodule is at which version
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I would like to have a possibility to display a list of all submodules together with the description (
git-describe output) and SHA-1 of the commit the submodule is on, similar to the output of
git submodule (status).
It could be included in the Submodule Update dialog or might be a separate view.
Additionally, it would be nice to have a context menu that allows actions like Show log, Fetch, Checkout or Open in Explorer for each submodule.
Currently, one has to either open the command line and excecute
git submodule (status) or with TortoiseGit open the Submodule Update dialog to get an overwiew of all the submodules and their paths and then manually navigate to the respective folders and open the log of each submodule to get the required information.
What version of TortoiseGit and Git are you using? On what operating system?
Windows 7 64 bit
