Allow multiple Git repositories to be active at once

This description has been modified by the admin.

This request is to have VS allow more than one Git repository be active at once. By allowing multiple repositories to be active at once, one can work with a solution that spans multiple repositories and also view histories and files of a submodule and parent repo at the same time.

        Must have this feature !
        Work with multiple components is painful in Visual Studio nowadays.

        Working with git submodules is really unpleasant right now with all the switching needed.

        This is a must. Software isn't found in just one repository... come on. Why was it coded like it is?
        Reusable software is in multiple libraries, which again wouldn't be in the same repo. so Silly that someone didn't get this from the GIT go.

        Please add support for working with multiple repositories in one solution.

        Agreed! We just switched to a submodules / microservice architecture and I am now sorely missing the git integration in VS Code.

        This is a critical requirement when writing enterprise level micro-service type of architecture. Otherwise, it slows down development and complicated the process where we need to use the console instead of visual studio to commit/push/sync things. VS becomes useless for these type of applications.

        Please add this feature as it is really annoying to view the history of submodules. Many companies use Git for their SCM. Really appreciate if VS has full Git integration.

        Please ... We use to work (with the old TFS version control) with solutions that uses several classlibs that are also used in other solutions.
        The difficulty of reusing repos/classlibs across different solutions is very very anoying
