Hi there,

FIrst of all, congratulations and a thank you for everyone who worked in
the git/phabricator/arc migration. Kudos big time here :)

Now, I'm patiently waiting for an official github.com/gitorious repository
from Blender Foundation. Meanwhile I pushed my own copy of git.
blender.orgto my github account.

For me everything works fine. I can update the submodules content,
fetch/pull/push master smoothly.

The problem I'm facing, is when someone tries to checkout the repository
with the submodules:

* mkdir multiview
* cd multiview
* git clone https://github.com/dfelinto/blender.git --single-branch -b
multiview blender
* git submodule update --init --recursive --remote

Submodule 'release/datafiles/locale' (https://github.com/dfelinto/
blender-translations.git) registered for path 'release/datafiles/locale'
(full log http://www.pasteall.org/47514)

So, it seems that the repository expects me to clone ALL blender external
Any suggestions? Am I doing anything wrong? Any official instructions on
that? . . .
