#10036: Submodules not cleaned
 Reporter: Niklas Angare <li51ckf02@…> | Owner: grafik

Milestone: To Be Determined | Component: Regression Testing
  Version: Boost Development Trunk | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: git |
 regression.py cleans the source directory of the super-project, but not
 the submodules. The "git status" command it runs just after cleaning shows
 this for me:

 On branch develop
 Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/develop'.

 Changes not staged for commit:
   (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working
   (commit or discard the untracked or modified content in submodules)

         modified: libs/interprocess (modified content)
         modified: libs/numeric/odeint (untracked content)
         modified: tools/build (modified content, untracked content)

 no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")

 The changes in libs/interprocess were caused by my patch_boost script. The
 changes in libs/numeric/odeint were generated files. The changes in
 tools/build were generated files plus manual changes I made to test
 something between runs.

 Adding the following command would appear to fix it:
 git submodule foreach "(git reset --hard; git clean -fxd)"

 While researching this I stumbled upon the fact that orphaned submodule
 directories aren't removed by git clean unless you pass it -ffxd (see the
 help for the -d option). However this will remove submodules that are
 present in another branch but not the current one, which may or may not be
 a good idea.
