Now I don't see them but still the submodules are marked as dirty.
Not a big deal anyway...

Yes that's the point, if I
- commit something
- can't merge because of some conflicts
- the patch not accepted

Then I'm done...
I didn't want to fork all those project but they're not so many in the
end maybe I can live with it...

It's really a pity that some projects still use CVS, why do they hate
