I have no idea what happened or why only now everything is 
exploding. That said, looks like possibly my tree has been 
corrupted for a while. I have no idea what is the catalyst to start 
the recent events.

Seems right now I have a mish-mash mixture of some modules with a 
.git directory and some modules with a .git file pointing to a 
respective .git directory in the root of the source tree.

Some modules have no .git directory in the module or in the root 
.git directory. Like right now, tde-i18n is void of any .git 
directory in either location. That is 1.1GB of files I don't want 
to have to download when all I need is a respective .git directory 

Running git pull does nothing to recreate the .git directory 

Is there a fix for this?

Or, is there a way I can update my tree to move the .git folder 
that exists in each module to ../../../.git/modules/ and create an 
appropriate .git file in each module that points to
