Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.
when I "own" SVN repository I can add post-review command there and it
costs me just few more seconds to commit my changes (I mean there is a time
difference when I commit my changes with and without post-review command in
hook). Now I am in situation when SVN is hosted by customer, I have no
access to it except for committing my code. It's a bit problematic to use
ReviewBoard for it. My solution for it was to write a java program which
connects to SVN each 5 (actually configurable value) minutes and asks if
there were any new commits, and then generates appropriate review requests
(well, useing post-review command, I just don't now internal RB services to
use them directly) for each of them automatically (just asking SVN for info
needed, like who committed, description... ). This way I don't need access
to SVN server, it does not make overhead for committing (time to commit is
the same as without post-review command, logically). Delay in few minutes
does not bother me (anyway it is post commit review). It is really easy to
implement and make it an option for users: either to use post-review
command in hook, or ReviewBoard will do the same on its own, just with
What operating system are you using? What browser?
