Thanks that's all I could really find, which is a tast for the client, i was hoping there would be a way of tagging files on the server so it would be as simple as choosing a checkout profile to get the list of files, that way if I add a new file which goes with a couple of the subprojects I could tag it as such and then the updating the "sparse" checkouts in the profile style would automatically include that.
seems like something that would be pretty easy to implement, perhaps it'll get implemented in the future.
