First consider if you want to keep those subproject in different
modules, if so you could import each module separately and make
another module for the whole project.

If not (it might be a good idea or not depending on the values for a b
and c above) you could import the whole project and replace the
repository files for project/a with the old ones.

Just remember to try it out first.
