Thomas Göttlicher<tgoettlicher@xxxxxxx> is collecting your usecases
(like 'find latest version tag of package X in distribution Y', ...)

There are two big projects doing something in this area which are _not_ using git submodules because they are ... weird.

Android: repo tool:

Android has hundred of gits repos of various components and they use the repo tool to work with them. They can tag this way a release across all repositories for example.

Chromium uses gclient from the depot tools

(only feature, it works on Windows)
