Perforce / General SCM Q

Hi.

I really like Perforce integration in 6.0 (and the EAPs that led to it).
Heck, it's much faster than P4V.

However, it only gets stuff that is in my project.

I'd like to be able to sync more than just that. For example, we build
some dlls for JNI use during our automated build and those get checked
in. I'd like to update those but currently it seems I only get them
updated from P4V and not from within IntelliJ.

The UI for such a feature could potentially show the Perforce workspace
the project belongs to and mark directories for exclusion / inclusion
similarly to Project Module configuration.

That will make P4V obsolete for me apart from the case of doing code
reviews, etc. for stuff that's not Java.

Is there any other person in the universe who wants that? :)

Thanks,
Amnon

Well, given that we already have a "Browse repository" feature for CVS and
SVN that works regardless of the project roots, it would make sense to have
a similar feature for Perforce at least for consistency purposes. But it's
interesting to see how much demand for this feature exists from other users.

Well, I'm here if you need someone to beta test something like that.
