How can we improve Azure DevOps?

Add submodule support in Visual Studio Git Extension

In the Visual Studio Git extension cloning a repo ignores submodules. When a repo is cloned it should perform a recursive clone through the submodules.

Also, submodules are not shown correctly for commits. Please add support for git submodules.

Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 has support for submodules. You can recursively clone and checkout a repo with submodules, as well as change the SHA of the submodules commit. You can’t make commits inside a submodule from inside VS. If you’re interested in that, please vote this new UserVoice request: https://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/330519/suggestions/13316574.
