Brake fluid & Clutch fluid used for both?

I think this is correct, but can someone confirm it for me? Does the Boxster use the brake fluid for the Clutch also at the same time?

1 ltr to completely flush and refill.

The clutch's bleeder valve (on top of the transmission) is tough to reach/see/get to.

Good luck

Call me wasteful. Last flush I bought two liters and used it all.
