How to build pull requests when using submodules

We have a setup with several submodules.

  • We commit changes to the submodules,
  • update the supermodule to reference the new commits,
  • push the lot to our forks and
  • create pull requests for all repositories

The problem we're experiencing is that when building the PR for the supermodule it does not know the commits referenced since they are in the users fork.

What are we doing wrong here?`
