As a sub{tree|repo} it's not external -- that's a git submodule.  A git
sub{tree|repo} is a full copy of the external source in your own repo. 
You are just using git sub{tree|repo} to manage (i.e. forking,
updating, etc.) it like you would any git repo you might not have
commit privileges with.

So just like you can fork any git repo, apply your own patches and push
those to your own fork, then periodically pull in changes since your
fork from upstream, commit those, rinse, repeat, you can do the same
with a git sub{tree|repo}.
