        Hold on!
        Commit does not recurse into externals. At least not in the 0.31 we
use over here.
        However update and status do.
        And I'm very thankful that it works this way!
        We use it to duplicate our base components (one directory tree) into
the various projects. So in reality there's only one base components project
that is used everywhere. Updating your project will get you the latest and
greatest base, but committing luckily does not commit local (testing)
changes on the base project.
