Search for nested projects in workspace with ibmint package command

When using git it is possible to have libraries in git submodules (nested repos).

A clone of a git repo with (Eclipse) projects and submodules will result in a git repo directory with child directorie that are either Eclipse projects of other git repos (the submodules). The child git repos has as child directories also Eclipse projects or other git repos, etc.

When in egit the clone submodules and import nested projects is selected it will find the projects in the submodules and add them to the workspace (only once, submodules can exists multiple times).
Note! Editing submodules in this way is not possible or at least complex, editing submodule should be done in a seperate workspace where only the submodule is cloned.

For build scripting having the ibmint package command to also look fornested projects as egit does will help. Now a temporary workspace has to be created with all the project directories as children.

    RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to submit this idea for enhancement which we agree would make the product easier to work with. Noting that there is a very easy workaround of adjusting the path parameter of the ibmint command to point to the parent directory of the project (or moving projects around using copy/paste as suggested in the description), it is unlikely that this request will have a high priority from a business point of view, but we welcome signs of support from the community nevertheless. Status is updated to Future Consideration.
