filter history to clean git repo from submodules
bzr: ERROR: The repository you are fetching from contains submodules, which are not yet supported.
Does git have an equivalent for the bazaar automv plugin? Bazaar + CruiseControl.Net examining history of deleted file Git: Merge in branch without polluting the Master history Using git and subversion code within a Bazaar project Should I look at version control systems beyond Subversion?

Importing a repository with submodules is not yet supported. The required support for dealing with submodules is present in bzr-git, but the feature that submodules are mapped to, which is called “nested trees” is not yet finished.
