Comment #2 on issue 1792 by jira.s...@gmail.com: post-review fails to upload diff with only binary files modified
http://code.google.com/p/reviewboard/issues/detail?id=1792

It appears as though the problem is caused by svn. From what I've read, svn does not support binary diffs (they only support text). There is a way to get around this though:

If you try to do an > svn diff binary.bin you will probably get a Cannot display error.

First set an editor so you can edit the file's svn properties.

export EDITOR=yourPreferredEditor

You can take a look at the properties file with:

svn propedit svn:mime-type binary.bin

And delete the svn:mime-type property with:

svn propdel svn:mime-type binary.bin

Then you should be able to get a diff using svn diff binary.bin (svn now thinks it is a text file).
