I appreciate your reply, and apologize for taking too long to respond.

Thank you for your concise explanation as well as connecting me to the 
Yeoman channel - it would certainly come in handy in the future.

Regarding your view about alternative solutions, I completely agree with 
all of your points. I eventually opted to use 
git-directory-deploy<https://github.com/X1011/git-directory-deploy>with Yeoman 
- it simplifies the whole deployment/publishing process, and it 
is CI ready, so as our project expands we'll be already covered from that 
angle too. It was also very easy to set up.
