You do realize that Perforce is licensed "per-human"?  You don't have to
pay extra for a single user to be on more than one Perforce instance.
Contact Perforce licensing for more details.

Subject: [p4] Merging Multiple Perforce Server Databases to a Single


Hi All, 

We have 3 perforce servers from 3 companies that have merged into one
company. The servers are remotely located, and we feel that development
would be better served by combining the servers and using proxies, since
this will cut down on the number of licenses that we'll need. Each
engineer has 2 or 3 licenses to access all of the servers, and we want
to consolidate.

Has anyone ever successfully completed this task? 

I know there will be issues with duplicate depot names, but I can't find
any information on the Perforce web site as to how this task would be
accomplished, with or without conflicting depot names.
