Its not just with clearcase but true with any version control system. Its because of three way merge say for example you have a element A and you created the branch/element B from A and then merge then you will not face any conflict or merge issue.

Not support you created B from A and someone else created C from A and both of you have done the changes in the same line then merge will find a conflict when you merge B to C. Hope this makes the doubt clear how its been identified.

We are trying to migrate views from Solaris to Unix. So we are doing a "reformat -dump" on the Solaris end and then a "reformat -load" on the Linux end.

All's going well EXCEPT - any "." view-private files (hidden files) are not coming over. Any ideas how I can make sure that these files are brought over as well?
