One solution is to use submodule. A submodule is standard Git repository
which is made part of another Git repository. This can be seen a bit
like Subversion externals.

See http://progit.org/book/ch6-6.html

Another solution is to do subtree merging. Both solutions have pro and cons.

See http://progit.org/book/ch6-7.html
