Comment #1 on issue 3732 by trowb...@gmail.com: rbt post is generating diff
against origin/master when on a local feature branch
Internally, rbt is actually creating two diffs. The first is the diff that
you want to review. The second is what we call a "parent diff", and is used
to handle the case where the source revision of the first diff hasn't yet
been pushed to the repository. By default, that's done by diffing against
If you have the case where there's a long-running branch, that parent diff
can be very large. We're currently working on making it automatically
detect which remote branch produces the smallest parent diff, but in the
meantime, if you have a better remote branch (such as
origin/feature-branch), you can set TRACKING_BRANCH in your .reviewboardrc
file or pass it in with --tracking-branch.
