Handle the situation where the git submodule status block is called s…

…eparately for each submodule.

capistrano-deepmodules was working fine, then all of a sudden it started only recursively updating the last of my submodules.  I must have updated some gem that now calls the block of run("cd #{dir} && #{source.submodule('status')}") for each submodule instead of once for all of them.  Documentation says "The block will be invoked every time the command produces output (stderr or stdout)." and that seems sufficiently ambiguous to allow "output" to be one submodule or all of them. capistrano-deepmodules is now robust enough to handle either situation.

We get an infinite loop when deploying with 0.2. 0.1 works perfect for us. I don’t know if this has anything to do with it but we see this with 0.2:

updating submodule at /var/www/rails/products/dash/collector/shared/cached-copy//test/fixtures

Note the duplicate slash.


It should be noted that we only have one “deep” submodule – perhaps that’s why 0.1 works fine for us.
