Comment #7 on issue 547 by wal...@chart.io: post-review doesn't link up
with authenticated Mercurial repositories properly
I do not know whether this fixes the general HTTPS Mercurial issue, but the
attached patch permits me to run ReviewBoard against a private Bitbucket
There is an issue with urllib2.AbstractBasicAuthHandler in that it REQUIRES
a www-authenticate header in the HTTP response in order to send any
credentials. This really should be fixed in the python distribution.
There is also a necessary Repository configuration workaround in
ReviewBoard resulting from Reviewboard's ignorance of the Bitbucket REST
Hosting Service: Custom
Repository type: Mercurial
Obviously substitute the real user name and repository in the path.
In addition, EVERY time I visit the specific Repository admin page, I end
up having to re-supply the Bitbucket password when I save any change.
