      Description

      We need to be able to poll perforce SCM using a different mask than the one used
      to checkout, this is useful for situations in which you have a huge workspace
      but you're only interested in changes in a small part of it.

          Just as a side note: the latest 1.0.16 release should restore the functionality of the '-' prefix in the view spec that was broken in 1.0.15.

          gborbolla, what does your change look like? Are you adding a new optional text box for the polling view spec?

          I've added similar functionality to an experimental branch that I'll be merging after some more testing. The biggest difference between my change and what is described, is that it doesn't use a separate client workspace. Instead, it's just a list of depot paths that changes are listed from. As a result, the '-' prefix will not work.

          gborbolla: are you still actively working on this? If not, I'll unassign it from you.

          The patch I had no longer applies for the current code, so go ahead and reassign to you

          I see that this is ticket is resolved, and i see where the version history for 1.0.29 says that this has been implemented. But I'm not finding any instructions for how this works. Is it documented anywhere that I can look?

          It's documented on the plugin configuration page under 'View Mask'. Feel free to fire me an email if you've got any more questions.
