Sorry for being vague above. They are run on master branch of the super project, which points to master
branch of regex, which is that old. I am unsure what's the value of testing master branch of superproject
at this point. It's too early.

Did you do "git fetch" in the superproject? As for Unix command line, the approach that Michael used will work as well - look at the
tree at github and it should have subproject references, like so:

- Go to
- Click 'browse code'
- Go to 'libs' and record the short id of regex.
- Manually paste that id into URL, like so:

Yes, it's ugly roundabout way.
