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

We do not intend to use git submodules as we know about the difficulties.
There even is no need to use them at all.

The script in the yast-meta package (name not yet choosen) just knows about
all the other yast repos (either statically with a list in a file, or
dynamically by querying the github api). The only magic the script does, is to
checkout the repos in the same directory structure as we have currently with
the svn repo. Its just to make the switch a little easier.

So nobody has to use the meta package, but it might help people who are used
to our current svn layout.

The script currently only exists in my head. I will write a first version
within the next days and hope it will be improved and extended by many
