New issue 2043 by nicolas....@gmail.com: Using reviewboard without a
repository - only upload a diff file
What version are you running?
What's the URL of the page this enhancement relates to, if any?
Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.
We currently use mercurial and SVN (legacy) as our reposirories. Most of
the time, this works 100%. There are some cases with mercurial when we
would like to review a patch (diff) but the parents are not on the server.
In theory, using the parent diff could solve the problem, but it happened a
few times when the changes and merges made it too complicated for some of
the end users to generate the parent patch.
Therefore, in those case, even if we lose a few features (like the code
expansion over the 3 lines given in the diff), we would like to be able to
create a review with only the patch file, and no link to the repository
What operating system are you using? What browser?
Windows, Chrome (and others, depending on our users).
Please provide any additional information below.
We are open to alternative solutions, among others, if we could serve our
local repo for a few moments, while the review is being created, this would
help go around the problem.
