 +==== Updating from within the submodule ====
 +
 +It's worth mentioning that step 1 above can also be performed straight from the submodule itself (see example below for phpmailer), provided of course that the remotes (origin and upstream) have been properly configured.
 +
 +**WARNING**: if you update the submodule in-place, it is critical that you actually push the changes to //origin// otherwise the other developers will have an corrupted repository with missing commits when they pull the changes.
 +
 +  * Update the submodule from upstream <code>
 +cd library/phpmailer
 +git fetch upstream
 +git rebase upstream/master master
 +git checkout mantis
 +git merge v5.2.7
 +# Resolve conflicts
 +</code>
 +  * Push changes to the fork - **don't forget this step !**<code>
 +git push origin --tags master mantis
 +cd ..
 +</code>
 +  * Edit ''README.libs''
 +  * Commit the changes <code>
 +git commit -a
 +</code>
