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 origin/master

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.
