Trouble deploying from GitHub

Hi everybody! I just signed up and failed to deploy Netlify App from my GitHub. The error log is as follows:

@bagelwrangler The error mentions a submodule, have you read the submodule specific documentation?

I read through your docs, but it’s all foreign to me. I don’t really understand what to do next.

@bagelwrangler It’s not my documentation, as I don’t work for Netlify.

If you’re on a regular plan they’re considered to be “self service” so it’s up to you to understand and debug your own project.

In this case, since the issue is submodule related, if you can’t figure out how to work with it, perhaps you could try not using a submodule. E.g. Reduce the complexity until things start working.
