Submodule Display

We now detect and display submodules making it easy to see what other code is being referenced via our web interface.

If the submodule points to a repo on GitHub it will be automatically linked. If you hover over the short SHA1 for a few seconds you’ll see the submodule address and full SHA1 in a tooltip.
