Hi There.

Most places Perforce is listed as a supported VCS, but there's no feature for perforce on the update site (3.7 at least) and the last commit to the p4 code on the git repo was almost two years ago (2010-06-09 03:30:17 (EDT))

Does anybody know if the support for p4 is discontinued?
and if still supported: what would be the proper way to install the p4 feature?

Thanks Smile

Maintenance on the code stopped due to lack of interest - a series of
changes were made just to make the code compile and there was no real
testing and hence the code was deactivate (not updated, built, etc.).

The code can be resurrected I guess, and you could publish it on a p2
site when you get it working. However, I don't think it will make it
back to Buckminster unless someone promises to also devote resources to
keep it in stable and releasable state.

Don't know if that was the answer you wanted ;).

I just wanted to know, if I could use it out of the box. Smile
It's probably most likely that we just keep checking the code out normally and use the local rmap provider, but if I get the p4-feature working I'll post a link in this thread.
