New issue 1917 by joshua.m.kwan: post-review doesn't play nice with msysgit
What version are you running?
1.5 Beta 1
When trying to post a review from a git repository on Windows using
msysgit, post-review will not pick up git because msysgit installs
a 'git.cmd' into the user's PATH. But post-review uses subprocess.Popen to
launch commands, which on Windows delegates to CreateProcess, which does
not automatically append .cmd extensions, only .exe (see MSDN for an
explanation of this behavior.) However, CreateProcess will resolve things
in the PATH, though, so subprocess.Popen('git.cmd', ...) does work.
The fix is to try running 'git.cmd' explicitly, only on Windows. a patch is
