Thanks for the reply. I understand the best practice of 1 repo == 1
project. But sometimes it just doesn't make sense. For example, I
have another big rails app that is not ready for deployment yet, but
I'd like to display a semi-functional splash site that uses lots of
the same assets. So I have a one-file sinatra app sitting in another
directory in the repo rather than creating another repo with duplicate
files for this purpose. It would be nice in this case just to deploy
that dir (which could have it's own teensy Capfile).
Further complicating things is the fact that you can indeed check out
paths of submodules, which seems like it doesn't fit with the 1 repo
== 1 project philosophy.
But this is not a git discussion board so I'll leave it that, except
to say thanks for Cap, it's a fantastic tool.
