Git workflow with submodules for Drupal deployment

Maybe you've seen the great article on Drupal Deployment with Git Submodules, by Randy Fay. I manage this site using that strategy, but some times I forget how every operation is done. So here I'm collecting them for my own reference.

For fetching all the new info from submodules: 


git submodule foreach git fetch origin 

Now we go into each module folder and use:


git pull 

If we wanted to switch to a different branch, we should use:


git branch -a # we see the available branches 
git checkout 7.x-2.x # the different branch 

For commiting it, we go back to the contrib folder and do:


git add contrib-module-name 

At the end, we use:


drush updb --debug -y 

Maybe we see some warnings because of unresolved dependencies. In that case, add the new submodule:


git submodule add --branch 7.x-1.x git://git.drupal.org/project/entity.git sites/all/modules/contrib/entity 

Finally, updating core:


git merge drupal/7.x drush updb --debug -y 

Ok, so we've done this on our DEVELOPMENT site. If everything is OK, now it's time to update the server, after doing a backup:


git pull
git submodule update --init 
drush updb --debug -y

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.You’ve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

My developer is trying to

My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
