[openstack-dev] Osl and dangerous code merging

Really sorry, but I don't understand why using some specific oslo sync util
is simpler then git submodules?)

I mean this two things are almost the same but:
In case of oslo we are copy-pasting code
In case of submodules we are bumping commit hashs

So why submodules are terrible and oslo-sync is good?=)
Where is so big difference, and could somebody explain me? (I mean real use
cases from life where oslo sync is good and submodules are bad)

Best regards,
