Stream depots

Stream depotsClosed A depot used with streams and stream clients. A stream depot has structured branching, unlike the free-form branching of other depot types. See also classic depot and graph depot. contain streamsClosed A branch with built-in rules that determine which changes to propagate to files in a stream depot, and in what order. A stream specification defines a stream. A user creates a stream spec by using the 'p4 stream' command or in P4V with File > New Stream. In P4V, stream specs are visible in the Streams Graph and the Streams tab.. Streams are special branches that include hierarchy and policy. Like local depots, stream depots reside on the Helix Server. The distributed versioning architecture (DVCS) has personal server that uses a stream depot.
