Fraser Speirs - Blog - Understanding Git Submodules
"The big thing to remember is that, unlike svn:externals, updating your superproject from a master repository does not do the same for the project's submodules .... If you advance HEAD in a submodule, then update the superproject, it's important to remember to push submodule changes before you push the superproject changes. If you don't, your superproject will contain references to commits that only exist in your local clone of the subproject."
