Currently the repository 'scripts' should include an updated script, making 
another run switch_all_submodules_to_head_and_clean should be successful. 
Alternatively, you can copy script switch_all_submodules_to_head_and_clean to 
another path and run from this path. The script can be run repeatedly - to 
perform a complete update of all repositories.

If you want to clone again only some submodules from whole GIT tree, remove 
the following:

1) Git folder of particular module in .git/modules/<module-path> - completely.
   For example .git/modules/main/tdelibs

2) The contents of working folder of particular module.
   For example main/tdelibs/*

3) Information about particular module in file .git/config
   For example:
   [submodule "main/tdebase"]
        url =

And then run again script switch_all_submodules_to_head_and_clean. All missing 
modules will be re-cloned.
