N/A

Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.

'rbt post' under perforce has a perhaps-unintended feature where I can update a review without using the -u option. However, rbt treats it as a new review and re-guesses the summary and description. It's convenient (and necessary in my organization, where we have a GUI alias to invoke rbt) to be able to use 'rbt post' (rather than 'rbt post -u') regardless of whether or not I'm posting a new review or updating an existing one.

When it realizes it's updating an existing review instead of publishing a new one (when -u is not specified), I would like rbt post to preserve that review's summary and description (which I may have edited when initially publishing the review) instead of overwriting them again from the changelist.


What operating system are you using? What browser?
Windows 7

Please provide any additional information below.

If you agree with the intended behavior, I'm happy to write the patch. It should be pretty simple.
