Running "update_submodules" task Warning: fatal: Not a git repository: ../../../../../../../Dropbox/MBP/Citadel/jQuery/jquery/.git/modules/src/sizzle/modules/speed/benchmark.js Failed to recurse into submodule path 'src/sizzle' Use --force to continue.

Our tools are designed for the most straightforward use case: working directly in the repo. Do you have a reasonable patch?

Not yet, just wanted to get the bug filed. You can assign it to me if you wanna. Gotta finish my talk at jqcon toronto first. <3z from canada!

I don't know how, but I missed that you were the OP. Assigning to you ;)

Do you really want to put your repos in Dropbox? I think ben_alman has a nightmare story about that.

Should this stay open?

Ran into this bug when I checked out jquery into /var/tmp to play around with it. :(

Happy to find this ticket, but lest anyone be misled by some of the comments here, you don't have to be doing anything strange to hit this bug.

I think this is no longer relevant, since submodules aren't used anymore.
