[swift-users] Swift Package Manager and Git submodules

This sounds like a bug to me, I suspect that the current code isn't causing the submodule to update appropriately.

If you have a working example, can you try using the latest OSS snapshot from swift.org, and running:
  swift package reset
  swift build --enable-new-resolver
and seeing if you get the behavior you expect?

However, in fact what I get is 0.0.1/0.0.2 (in other words, I get the right - older - version of the wrapper package, but wrong - new - version of the C submodule).
