AFAIK not possible (git is poor for supporting such sparse checkout mode).
So we (infra folks) will have to maintain one git repo per component
and create a new git repo for each new component (IMHO a pain ..).
In some case git is probably nice but not here !
We have very similar situation in maven projects (with some components
which have their own lifecycle) and we decided to not move those parts
to git.
But hey what is most important build a community around cool
code/projects or being able to use the last "à la mode" scm tool ?
