No, I don't think so. The main thing about submodules is that every submodule is bound to a specific commit. Unless the main goal here is to step-update all three modules at once, it's not a good solution. And in this particular case, using submodules looks like 'let's keep two copies [hardlinks] of the same repository for no good reason'. -- Best regards, Michał Górny
