Thanks, Andy

Hi Andy,

When you created this suite and also u-au327 you've somehow created it with the wrong userid (AndrewElvidge rather than all lowercase). (See The repository pre-commit hooks will then not allow you to commit with this username as it doesn't conform to the rules.

Please check that your username is set to "andrewelvidge" (all lowercase) in the following 3 places:

1) ~/.metomi/rose.conf

2) ~/.subversion/servers

3) ~/.subversion/auth/svn.simple/2be6a67d04b1c8c6d879daafa52fd762
If the username is incorrect in (3) please delete the file and then rerun the mosrs-cache-password script to recache your password.

Then try again. Hopefully that will then allow you to commit to the suite, it will probably warn you that you are not the owner of the suite due to the different username.

This situation has been encountered before and it is usually recommended to abandon the dodgey suites and create new ones making sure the userid on creation is correct.

Thanks very much Ros,

The problem was in ~/.subversion/auth/svn.simple/2be6a67d04b1c8c6d879daafa52fd762
I corrected this here, and now it's working fine - I am able to run fcm commit without problem.

I didn't notice any warning about not owning the suite.

it is usually recommended to abandon the dodgey suites and create new ones making sure the userid on creation is correct.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by this…? I'm hoping that all is now well and that I don't need to abandon the suite.

Thanks, Andy

Hi Andy,

Glad it appears to be all working now.

I just meant that if you experience any further FCM weirdness with these suites then I would advise you create new suites.

I'll close this query now.
