We are renaming our internally hosted GitLab server.
Some projects use other repositories as submodules.
There is a good point about configuring submodules with relative remote URLs: https://docs.gitlab.com/ce/ci/git_submodules.html
However historically we have lots of submodules with absolute URLs.
In lots of projects.
In lots of branches.
Is there a way to automate search through the whole GitLab instance to find such submodules with absolute path. Through API?
Then we would convert them to relative, prior to renaming of the GitLab server. And save the world!
