RE: Import large amount of files on Windows (but cvsnt has issues)

On another project, I tried the Tortoise recursive "add contents" and
then when committing through tortoise we end up with a "too many
arguments" error.  We're trying to commit 11,000 files.  Perhaps that is
a server limitation that we could adjust, but I also think it may be
happenining for a good reason.

What is killing me is that I wrote a php script (easier for me) to
recurse the directories and commit the contents of that directory
(command-line).  No single directory will contain 11,000 files so that
breaks up the commits.  It works perfectly on my development server but
not in production on the 11,000 files.  The production run is on another
machine so perhaps the client is why the script is failing.

Once I can get these 11,000 files in safely and without trouble I can
tackle the 450,000.

Perhaps I do need to look at the recursive add/commit script again.
It's looking like that will be the best solution at this point.
