Just wondering, when I want to update a plugin, do I have to reinstall it and do everything over again or is there any easier way?

I wrote a gem called ext for doing subproject management in an SCM agnostic manner. It allows you to use a mixture of git/svn projects and works more like svn:externals than git-submodule. It might not be of interest though because it does not currently allow you to freeze a subproject at a specific revision. So your subprojects will always be up to date, but the downside of this is if an update to a subproject breaks the main project or a different subproject, it could be annoying. I figured I'd mention it anyways. A tutorial on how to use it is at http://nopugs.com/ext-tutorial I'll probably add support for freezing to a specific revision in the near future.
