'Depot' is a software management tool kfor maintaining third party and locally developed software in large heterogeneous computing environments. It integrates separately maintained software packages ('collections') into a common directory hierarchy (the 'software environment') consisting of a union of all the collections. A set of configuration options manages interactions and intersections between collections in the environment. Custom environments and complete test environments can be created for machines or sets of machines. Collections with problems can be removed or replaced with previous versions. Individual collections or files can be moved from remote to local filesystems.
