Comment #4 on issue 1795 by chip...@gmail.com: using "--submit-as" with
post-review causes generated mails to be from original submitter
It's part RBTools, part Review Board. But not really a bug, per se.
--submit-as is used for the creation of a review request, to put it in
someone else's name. That's a separate operation from publishing. When
publishing, the e-mail will go out as the user logged in.
There's definitely a use case for making a publish operations happen on
behalf of another user, but we aren't set up for that today. So this would
need to be added.
One option is to just use the review request submitter for the e-mail, but
that's likely not what we want in all cases. I'm hoping to introduce a
multi-user workflow for review requests, where the ownership can be
reassigned, and other users could modify fields with state being preserved
to indicate who made the change.
That won't solve your problem directly, though. You'd still need to either
log in as the user, or would need to specifically do a --submit-as on that
operation (which we'd have to support).
