Suppose I create a new local branch and name it "mybranch" and made some changes in some files. I commit the changes, checked out to master branch, merged "mybranch" with master branch and pushed the changes to master.

I checked out back to "mybranch", now is there anyway to get the list of files in which I made the changes?

I'm getting this warning:

warning: Could not find section in .gitmodules where path=XXX

whenever I use "git mv" to move a file in a repository containing a submodule. The file is outside the submodule and is completely unrelated, so I do not understand the intent of the warning.

My understanding (without looking at the code in detail) is that Git tries to be clever about submodule renames, hence checks whether the source file is a submodule. But then if the lookup fails, it should just silently move on to "normal file move" mode I guess...
