I'm trying to run mvn site-deploy with an sftp:// url. The remote system provided a limited shell for my user account that allows cvs & sftp. This works for mvn deploy to deploy jars, etc., even when it needs to create a directory to copy the file up. The site plugin, however, must call a different wagon method that causes the following command to be executed:
Executing command: mkdir -p /var/www/sites/cdcie-parent-core/cdcie-parent-webapp/cdcie-webapp-troubletickets/.
To be able to deploy my site, I need an sftp:// url to strictly use only sftp as is done by mvn deploy.
