I have downloaded 3 bundles and another odd patch, and was wondering if it was possible to creating one big depot file and apply it one big hit.
The files in my tar ball are:

Use swcopy to copy everything into a single depot.
Hope this helps!

When you use 'swcopy' to merge patches and patch bundles into a single depot, use the '-x enforce_dependencies=false' option. This skips the enforcement of any dependency requirements. That is, if any patch being copied lacks a dependency, then the 'swcopy' will fail.
This is perfectly acceptable and makes depot creation much easier. The idea is that when you actually 'swinstall' the depot, you *do* enforce dependency resolution ('-x enforce_dependencies=true). Then, a dependency can be satisfied if it is either in the depot being installed, *or* already installed on the server.

>if it was possible to creating one big depot file
If you look at create_depot_hpux.11.31, it will already do that with the 4 patches you have.
I suppose if you modify patch_manifest, you can get it to do all of them.

It looks like the shopping cart did the right thing. You are good to go with create_depot_hpux.11.31.
