I want to fork a project on Gitlab that includes three submodules. Forking the main repo was easy, I simply clicked on the “Fork” button in the UI but I am having trouble now to get the submodules into my freshly forked repo, since the fork only gets me the main repo. I can fork the submodules on their own, but then they end up next to the forked main repo. Is there a way to fork recursively, so the whole repo structure including submodules will stay intact? Is there a way to do so using the Gitlab UI? I’m no Git or Gitlab expert, so I hope there is a simple way to do it, and I apologize if I used the wrong terms for some of the stuff I described above.
Thanks in advance for your help, guys!
