init: add --submodules to sync manifest submodules repo sync can sync submodules via the --fetch-submodules option. However, if the manifest repo has submodules, those will not be synced. Having submodules in the manifest repo -- while not commonly done -- can be useful for inheriting a manifest from another project using <include> and layering changes on top of it. In this way, you can avoid having to deal with merge conflicts between your own manifests and the other project's manifests (for example, if you're managing an Android fork). Add a --submodule option to init that automatically syncs the submodules in the manifest repo whenever the manifest repo changes.

Repo is a tool built on top of Git. Repo helps manage many Git repositories, does the uploads to revision control systems, and automates parts of the development workflow. Repo is not meant to replace Git, only to make it easier to work with Git. The repo command is an executable Python script that you can put anywhere in your path.
