How do I create a Config pkg on puma

Dear Helpdesk

We need a Met Office Config pkg on puma:

I've created a patch, which can be found at

However, I've failed to produce an appropriate destination pkg to patch; using the fcm gui I get:
# Start: 2015-01-28 14:56:13⇒ fcm branch-create —svn-non-interactive -t PKG::CONFIG —rev-flag NORMAL PS32_UKV_Configuration fcm:um@vn8.2
[info] Source: svn://puma/UM_svn/UM/trunk@9602 (9602)
[info] nedit: starting commit message editor…
Change summary:

A svn://puma/UM_svn/UM/branches/pkg/Config/vn8.2_PS32_UKV_Configuration

Commit message is as follows:

Copy of Met Office Config of same name
Created /UM/branches/pkg/Config/vn8.2_PS32_UKV_Configuration from /UM/trunk@9602.

but this seems to have hung and no such pkg exists.

Is this something you have to do (I presume I am not authorized to create pkgs?

Hi Pete,

You can create Config and Share branches. Can you please try doing it on the command line; it might be that it was waiting for input for some reason (e.g password).

fcm bc -t CONFIG PS32_UKV_Configuration fcm:um@vn8.2

If it does prompt for a password just hit return.

Hope that helps.
