Submodule in subdirectory deeper than one level is disabled for deletion

We can create a submodule in subdirectory deeper than one level, for example Application/Driver/. But I can not delete this submodule after that, Delete action for submodule is disable in menu on right button click mouse. If submodule is created in a directory on the same level as .git file all will be Ok, I mean the deletion is enable.

Hi Alexander, this sounds like a bug and I've reported it at SRCTREEWIN-7571. You can watch that page for further updates, you can also add a comment if you have any question.




to overcome that trouble I created a scrypt, it works good for me. 

git config -f .gitmodules --remove-section submodule.$SUBMODPATH
git add .gitmodules
git config -f .git/config --remove-section submodule.$SUBMODPATH
git rm --cached $SUBMODPATH
rm -rf .git/modules/$SUBMOD
git commit -m $SUBMOD
