I reviewed git 'submodules' a few days ago, as a possible method to
replace the use of svn:externals, specifically to use the master
MIGRATION_GUIDE document inside the docs repository as well.
After much examination and thought, I decided against it; solely from
the many complaints I received from devs regarding the external. With a
submodule the users will each have to execute another command to update
the submodule (if I remember correctly).
Therefore I chose a simple copy of the file. Not fancy, but potential
contributors don't need to run extra commands.
I am open to listening to other thoughts on this.
