Creating a user working copy of a standard HadGEM2-ES branch at version 6.6.3

Reported by: mhollaway Owned by: ros
Component: FCM Keywords: HadGEM2-ES, branch creation
Cc: Platform:
UM Version: 6.6.3



I am trying to create my own branch at version 6.6.3 with respect of checking out a working copy from this branch. Whenever I try to create the branch it automatically reverts to trying to create it at the latest revision(2104) at version 7.4. Is there a way for me to create a branch for HadGEM2-ES at version 6.6.3.

Many thanks.

Michael Hollaway.

Hi Michael,

Creating branches at version 6.6.3 is a bit more complicated than the other versions, as you just discovered. In order to make things simpler there is a script on PUMA that you can run to correctly create a hg6.6.3 branch.


When you run this script it will ask you a series of questions. For the most part you just need to press <Return> to accept the default or type the branch name and associated ticket number.
There are 2 questions that present a list of options to select from and you should select option 1.


P.S. I will add this to the FAQ in due course.

Glad that worked ok. This query is now being closed.

An FAQ entry has been added to the UM Trac Wiki at: How do I create a branch at 6.6.3
