I'm frankly horrified that you push build artifacts into the repository
like this ... only because the cms system appears to require it. It's
irrelevant whether this is Git or Subversion: it's a waste of space and
time. This looks like a case of using the wrong tool for the job.

In cases like this I'd strongly recommend that you ask Infra to set up a
small VM for you to build and host the Javadocs on, and link to that
from your web site (or proxy it; the VM itself doesn't have to be
visible to the 'net). The javadocs should be easily rebuildable from
release bits and don't require version control, just VM backups.
