Hi.
I would like to move a mainline(which has child streams) from one stream depot to another(on the same server).
Please let me know how to do this.

Thankyou

Bump. Would be interested, too. Are there any new features that allow for easy movement of mainline streams to other depots?

It's probably doable (duplicate the files, clone the stream specs, update all the clients...?), but it's tricky enough that it's hard for me to imagine that it would be worth the disruption.  What would you ultimately be trying to accomplish by "moving" a mainline from one depot to another?

My bump was mainly concerned with new features that got introduced the last 1,5 years. You are right that this is already doable. But it is a lot of effort and takes time. There just should be an easier way.

Goal: We have changed our depot structures to have folders/subfolders etc.  for better organisation and tidiness and it would be nice to combine older projects into the same depot as they belong there from a logical point of view
