What version are you running?
What's the URL of the page containing the problem?
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Install Subversion 1.7.x
2. In a working copy, make a change to an svn property (e.g. svn:externals).
3. Use svn diff to create a patch and attempt to create a review with it,
or use post-review.
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Expected output is a successfully created review. What I see instead for a
propchange on a directory, is this error:
URL 'http://PATH/TO/SVN/LOCATION/trunk' refers to a directory
or, for a propchange on a file:
The file 'http://PATH/TO/SVN/LOCATION/trunk/SomeFile.cs' (r198207) could
not be found in the repository
What operating system are you using? What browser?
Windows 7, Chrome.
Please provide any additional information below.
The newly release Subversion 1.7 has a change in the way "svn diff" works
for property changes. They are now shown in unidiff format. See here:
Reviewboard does not handle this format correctly.
