unable to create branch on PUMA UM repository

Reported by: dstork Owned by: ros
Component: FCM Keywords:
Cc: Platform: PUMA
UM Version: 8.2

Description (last modified by ros)


I'm having trouble creating a branch in the UM repository. The command I'm using is:

fcm branch -c -n NEMO3.4 fcm:UM/trunk@vn8.2 -t DEV::USER

It allows me to create a commit message but when I exit the editor I get:

dstork@puma:/home/dstork/UM/local_code> fcm branch -c -n NEMO3.4 fcm:UM/trunk@vn8.2 -t DEV::USER
[info] Source: svn://puma/UM_svn/UM/trunk@9602 (9602)
[info] emacs: starting commit message editor...
Change summary:
A    svn://puma/UM_svn/UM/branches/dev/dstork/vn8.2_NEMO3.4
Commit message is as follows:
Branch to create new bindings file for NEMO 3.4.
Copy of Chris Harris' (hadci) branch in Met Office repository.
Created /UM/branches/dev/dstork/vn8.2_NEMO3.4 from /UM/trunk@9602.
Create the branch?
Enter "y" or "n" (or just press <return> for "n") Use of uninitialized value $answer in scalar chomp at /home/um/fcm/bin/../lib/FCM/System/CM/ line 166.

I managed to create a branch in the NEMO-CICE repository this morning.

Hi Dave,

Try logging out of PUMA and back in again. Every now and then PUMA decides that it's not going to wait for user input. It's a gremlin that we've not been able to track down yet and appears very infrequently.

Hi Ros,

That worked thanks. However, I've forgotton my password for the UM repository (different from the NEMO-CICE repository?). Is it possible to reset it please?

Hi Dave,

If you're talking about the password subversion is prompting for, just hit return or use the —passwd "" option as the password is blank.
