File "C:\Python27\Scripts\rb-site-script.py", line 9, in <module>
load_entry_point('ReviewBoard==2.0.13', 'console_scripts', 'rb-site')()
line 1883, in main
line 1225, in run
line 1438, in ask_database_login
line 942, in prompt_input
temp_value = getpass.getpass(prompt)
File "C:\Python27\lib\getpass.py", line 95, in win_getpass
TypeError: must be char, not unicode
Can be fixed by replacing line 944 with:
temp_value = getpass.getpass(prompt = prompt.encode('ascii','ignore'))
