Automated Dependency Updates for Git Submodules

Renovate supports updating Git Submodules dependencies.

Enabling

Git Submodules functionality is currently in beta testing so you must opt in to test it out. To enable it, add a configuration like this to either your bot config or your renovate.json:

{
  "git-submodules": {
    "enabled": true
  }
}

If you encounter any bugs, please raise a bug report. If you find that it works well, then feedback on that would be welcome too.

File Matching

By default, Renovate will check any files matching the following regular expression: (^|/).gitmodules$.

For details on how to extend a manager's fileMatch value, please follow this link.
