Rider 2019.2 and submodules


Did anything changed in git submodules update policy in 2019.2?

At this point on project update (Ctrl+T) all submodules are tend to be updated too. Not sure if it was the same behavior before.

But even if it did, wouldn't it make sense to do this conditionally?

Hello Semyon,

There were no changes in this functionality in IntelliJ since 2018.3.

Submodules are updated by git submodule update. Therefore, IDE fetches all submodules and calls git submodule update --recursive. It should check out each submodule on a revision that corresponds the one recorded in the root repo. 

Could you please describe more details about your case?
