[pass] Setup for multiple password stores

I'm wondering what setup folks use for having multiple password stores, 
particularly when one of those password stores is shared between 
multiple people.

Currently, I'm using a .git directory inside of ~/.password-store that 
has git submodules.

For example, I currently have the following directory structure:

	├─ .password-store
		├─ personal
		└─ collaborative-project

where personal is my personal store of passwords and 
collaborative-project contains passwords for a project that I'm working 
on with somebody else. Both of these are submodules of the top-level git 
directory so that the collaborative-project—but not the 
personal—repository can be shared with somebody else via git cloning, 
pushing, and pulling from/to a cloud-hosted git repository.

However, this setup causes the automatic git committing that pass does 
to break. For example, running:

	pass generate personal/asdf 22


	fatal: Pathspec '/Users/adamliter/.password-store/personal/asdf.gpg' is 
in submodule 'personal'
	The generated password for personal/asdf is:
	py?Je17K6Bfs|Pj at qspgE1

So it does generate the password, but the git commits are not correctly 

Currently, I'm just manually committing things myself, but I'm wondering 
if there is a better setup or workflow to deal with this sort of 


(And thanks, Jason, for an awesome password manager! :) )
