I've some experience with submodules, if you'd like to run that route, I may be able to iron out any bumps; the biggest "gotcha" is generally to commit (and push) any changes in the submodule first, then push the containing project, so it's updated with the newly committed ID. If you're merely tracking upstream, that's less likely to be an issue.
