This property will override the Perforce SCM driver's generated
clientspec name.

Subject: Perforce and Client Specs

Is there anyway to force Continuum to use a particular client spec when
the SCM is Peforce...? I've got a project that relies on stuff in
different parts of the repository, it's a tool that requires data files
that are used to build some other stuff.

If I specify the project location in the SCM URL then Continuum doesn't
check out all the necessary files. If specify a more generic SCM URL
then Continuum checks out too much stuff.

scm:perforce://depot/stuff/project/... - not enough stuff
scm:perforce://depot/stuff/... - too much stuff

I have a client spec that has the correct paths for the necessary files,

//depot/stuff/project/... //p4/stuff/project/...
//depot/stuff/servers/...dat //p4/stuff/servers/...dat

Is there anyway to get Continuum to use this client spec, or another way
to tell it to check out more of the repository...?
