Hello Emmanuel,

thanks a lot for your answer. A ClearCase dynamic view looks like a normal
filesystem, so I think scm-local in principle is a fine solution. I think
there wouldn't be much what a dedicated dynamic-view support in the
Clearcase SCM provider could add.

Couldn't the scm-local adapter consider all files that are in the checkout
dir but not in the source dir as deleted? This should be easy to implement
and do the job.

Best regards,
