Since all of our projects use a -lib repos as a submodule at vendor/ we should add submodule details to our docs.

Esp. "Common scenarios" - Add a library, Update a library, Remove a library, Change a library origin, Fork and/or branch a library submodule, etc.

Also, we should cover how submodules push to staging & production servers - update_site.py, etc.

Most of the information about vendor libraries is already in playdoh: http://playdoh.readthedocs.org/en/latest/packages.html

As far as git goes, we already link to git resources, but I guess we could deep-link to a certain chapter for the connection between submodules and vendor lib.

I'd appreciate deep links but also Mozilla-specific scenarios as examples instead of meaninglessly contrived examples like:

$ for i in a b c d
do
git submodule add ~/git/$i $i
done

Pro Git is better, but I learn best from doing specific tasks rather than following others' explanations.

@groovecoder - are you still having issues with this, or is this something you'd feel comfortable writing now? I think you may have the best perspective, because you understand what is confusing about submodules.
