I am trying to setup a project to poll only for specific changes as related to its //depot/project. This is easy enough as I can specify that in the materials section. However, this build will also use source from other projects in the depot (//depot/project1/..., //depot/project2/..., etc). Usially this source is just common files used for building.
Since these are just not projects I wish to monitor for changes, I did not include them in the client view definition in the materials list. I would like to pull them as needed, however since they do not belong to the client view this is not possible. This is something I can easily do in subversion.
