A user of one of our Gradle builds is running into 'File name too long' errors. See the full post:
He's on an ext4 filesystem which, as he presumes, does have a maximum filename length of 255 characters. However, I'm on OS X, and its HFS+ filesystem has the same filename length limit; I've never seen this issue.
If anyone else is on ext4 and cares to try reproducing the issue, do the following:
git checkout --recursive git://git.springsource.org/spring-social/spring-social.git
if you run into an error about a missing 'remoteDocRoot' property, run the above as `./gradlew -PremoteDocRoot=/dev/null build`
