Create Release that contains submodule?

Hi,

My repo has a submodule, when i create a release, the tar/zip file generated doesn’t include the submodule.

Is there a way to include sumodule to the tar/zip file when I create a release?

Thank you!

release without the complete source code in the tarball sounds like a bug.

And it took me a minute to figure out why the conda-forge feedstock was failing - please (at least as a short-term fix) give users a warning when creating a release that does (not) contain submodules…
