Hm, I'm not exactly sure. Did you search for submodule in 'man
git-config'? There is a nice submodule.<name>.ignore, I can imagine
setting that can avoid ./g pull, given that 'git pull' by default
updates submodules as well, if the submodule reference is updated.
(I mean setting where you enable git hooks, etc.)

Sure, from a user's point of view, best to update core.git before push,
not after every commit.
