Responsive HTML5, too many files

We deliver our user documentation as chm files in our windows distributions. (Somewhere between 5 and 10 chm files, depending on product.) I use FM19 to generate these chm files, and they are checked in into our subversion repository.

We have decided to switch from chm to Responsive HMTL5 in the next version of our product.

But today I discovered that the number of files will be around 6000!

I can't check in that number of files. And I'm not sure the windows portage guys will accept that many files.

Any idea how to handle 6000 files?

Checking in that many files? I'm sure your source control has the capacity to check in that many files. Have a chat with your developers - maybe they can zip up your output to check the zip file in only; maybe they will package it as a self-extracting executable.

Thanks for answering. Yes, I'll ask the windows guys what they want.
