New issue 1322 by josh.hamacher: Post-review is ignorant of many files
brought in via "svn merge".
*NOTE: Do not post confidential information in this bug report.*
What version are you running?
What's the URL of the page containing the problem?
None; this is a post-review problem.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Use 'svn merge' to bring in changes from a different branch to the
working copy. In this case, the other branch should have had many files
added compared to the working copy.
2. Run 'svn status' and see how many files are opened.
3. Run 'svn diff' and see a significantly smaller number of files.
4. Since post-review only uses the output of 'svn diff', many files don't
appear as part of the review.
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
'svn diff' (and therefore post-review) only picks up files that have
changed due to the merge; it seems to skip over files that are created
locally. Since the addition of files is a significant change to a code
tree, I'd argue that all of the new files should be visible for review
(even if they were reviewed earlier in their original location).
What operating system are you using? What browser?
Shouldn't matter, but I have Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 on my workstation.
