I have a project in which I've included some libraries as submodules. They work fine on the machine that you add them on, but when I get home and checkout the repo, I get the folders for the submodules but they are empty.

.gitmodules

[email protected] /cygdrive/c/xampp/htdocs/learning-lithium
$ cat .gitmodules
[submodule "libraries/lithium"]
        path = libraries/lithium
        url = git://github.com/UnionOfRAD/lithium.git
[submodule "app/webroot/css/elements"]
        path = app/webroot/css/elements
        url = https://github.com/dmitryf/elements.git
[submodule "app/libraries/li3_markdown"]
        path = app/libraries/li3_markdown
        url = https://github.com/sandelius/li3_markdown.git
[submodule "app/webroot/markitup"]
        path = app/webroot/markitup
        url = https://github.com/markitup/1.x.git

I added these as you would normally with,
git submodule add <repo> <path>
git submodule init

The submodules are hosted on Github and my repo is hosted on Bitbucket, although I'm not sure if this is relevant.
