      Description

      See http://pastebin.com/UkFcVesT for "extra" git tasks being ran.

      L4 clones the HEAD branch (usually master)
      L7 and L8 bring in the HEAD's submodules.
      L13 check's out the branchToBuild.

      L14-L16 update the submodules to match the branchToBuild. But does not delete any submodules present in HEAD, but not present in branchToBuild.

      The current process is:
      clone, fetch, submodule init, submodule update, rev-parse, checkout, submodule init, submodule sync, submodule update

      The correct proecess should be:
      clone, fetch, rev-parse, checkout, submodule init, submodule sync, submodule update

      I've forked the plugin on github and will commit a fix once I have the Issue #...

            These changes should not introduce any un-wanted behavior. They will not fix this issue in its entirety! From the commit log:

            "JENKINS-8503 Removing an extra un-necessary git submodule init/update which causes delete submodules to stay when changing branch.

            This will only work reliably when Wipe Out Workspace is enabled. To my knowledge Git does not offer a mechanism for removing submodules without parsing the old/new .gitmodules and rm -rf'ing the deleted submodules."
