How to transfer Met Office branch

Reported by: ucfaako Owned by: ros
Component: FCM Keywords:
Cc: Platform: PUMA
UM Version: 6.6.3


I got two branches from the Met Office (Monsoon) that I would like to include in my model run (on ARCHER).
I created an FCM ticket for each of them (252 & 253).
But I accidentally assigned new URLs with the FCM GUI for both Met Office branches outside their directory (rather than in /home/ucfaako/umui_jobs/aniym.monsoon/[branch] they now refer to /home/ucfaako/umui_jobs/aniym.monsoon/).
This means these branches still refer to their old URLs on MONSOON when checking their status inside the branch directory. Could that cause some problems when running the model?
If so is there any way I could change this, so they only refer to their new URL (svn://puma/UM_svn/UM/branches/dev/ucfaako/vn6.6_r24306_CONSERVE_AMTOS_CO2_MAY_2013)?

Many thanks,

Just realised the tickets are in the FCM Tutorial section not the actual TRAC system. Is it best just to re-create them in the "real" system?

Many thanks for any help!!

Hi Alex,

Firstly, the creation of tickets is entirely optional. If it's helpful for you to document the 2 branches then yes, just recreate it/them in the UM Trac.

As for your question about the URLs above, I don't understand what you mean by assigning new URLs.

Running fcm info in /home/ucfaako/umui_jobs/aniym.monsoon/vn6.6_r24306_CONSERVE_ATMOS_CO2_MAY_2013 looks ok:

We have an FAQ on the website which guides you through applying a patch here:

Oops sorry; I've just realised you're using HG6.6.3 which requires the branches to be created in a different way as 6.6.3 is a minor revision.

Rather than using the GUI to create a branch you must use the create_HG2_branch script. This will prompt you for some input and then create a branch of the form hg6.6.3_<your_branch_name>. Again we have an FAQ which takes you through this:
