Comment (by rhaas):

 I think the update strategy would then be:

 bin/GetComponents -u --root . .crl_components # update manifest
 bin/GetComponents -u --root . manifest/einsteintoolkit.th # update
 everything else

 which should work with the current setup. I would actually argue to remove
 the complex logic about preserving changes and doing git stash etc in the
 git code of GetComponents and use a simpler strategy: "if the workspace is
 clean and git pull --ff-only succeeds use this otherwise use the result of
 git fetch only and inform the user that repo XXX could not be updated due
 to local changes".
