What do you mean by "dangerous code merging" in the subject? The body of
your mail doesn't make any reference to whatever "danger" you're seeing.

The idea of using submodules has come a few times. I don't have a
fundamental objection to it, except any time I've seen submodules used
in a project they've been extremely painful for everyone involved.

I'd be happy to look at a demo of a submodule based system for projects
to use code from oslo-incubator.
