We have been using this since shortly after the feature was added.  I
don't use it much, but it has been valuable, when needed.  It is not
only helpful for restoring deleted clients, but for restoring views of
existing workspaces.  I haven't experienced any negatives, or gotchas
with the feature.

Subject: [p4] Spec depots?


We are thinking of creating a spec depot since we had workspaces and
other things accidentally deleted in the past and those were very
difficult (and at times impossible) to restore.

What is the general view on these?  Does anyone use these?  Is it a good
idea, bad idea to have a spec depot?  Any gotchas?
