What version are you running?

Reviewboard 1.6.1
Subversion 1.7.1

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.
