New issue 3833 by rbt: guess the existing review request from the stamped URL

*** For customer support, please post to
*** If you have a patch, please submit it to

What version are you running?
ReviewBoard 1.7, RBTools 0.8 alpha

What's the URL of the page this enhancement relates to, if any?

Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.

Now that we have 'rbt stamp', I would like to add a guessing strategy for rbt post that scans through the commit message for a review request URL, and posts to that review request if it finds one. I would consider this to be an "authoritative" match that wouldn't require the user to confirm with the fuzzy match function.

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

Please provide any additional information below.

I think this would be a reasonable substitute for commit-ID guessing in Git (which can't be done because commit hashes change after rebasing), which would make it easier for developers to have multiple local branches open simultaneously with a code review for each.
