      Description

      Hi,

      I have a pretty complete site to publish to a git repository.
      I'm unable to publish it because linux limits command arguments to ARG_MAX kernel argument (unmodifiable): http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/38955/argument-list-too-long-for-ls

      And for sure, the command is veeeeeery long (more than two or three Jenkins console pages).

      This bug is at least blocker for my concern.

      The exact error:
      The error: Cannot run program "/bin/sh" (in directory "/var/lib/jenkins/jobs/OsgiliathEF-Site-Deploy/workspace/target/scmpublish-checkout"): error=7, Liste d'arguments trop longue

      An alternative could be either to pass a shell file containing arguments, either simply automate this task (what I'm doing now):

      • edit .gitignore and unignore target/staging directory
      • git add target/staging && git commit -m "Initial dist subtree commit"
      • git subtree push --prefix target/staging origin gh-pages
      • rollback and delete last revision

      There are maybe best alternatives such as using xargs or make scalable equivalents of the command:

      Best regards
