How do I move an existing git submodule within a git repository?
I would like to change the directory name of a git submodule in my git superproject.
Lets suppose I have the following entry in my
path = .emacs.d/vimpulse
url = git://gitorious.org/vimpulse/vimpulse.git
What do I have to type to move the
.emacs.d/vimpulse directory to
.emacs.d/vendor/vimpulse without deleting it first (explained here and here) and then readding it.
Does git really need the whole path in the submodule tag
or is it also possible to store just the name of the subproject ?
Beginning with Git 1.8.5 moving submodules is supported natively using the
git mv command.

My last commands were: git rebase -i HEAD^^ git rebase -i HEAD^^ git rebase -i HEAD^^^ How do I get the repository back to the state it was in before the first of the listed commands? NOTE: all I ha
