RBTools 0.7.2

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. rbt post <submitted changelist #>

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I would expect it to post with the Summary and Description taken from the Changelist Description. But when I look at it in the browser the fields are blank but the diff is there and correct.

This worked fine for pending and shelved changelists, just not already submitted changelists.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
Red Hat Enterprise for RB Server
Windows 7 64-bit for Client
Chrome Browser on Client

Please provide any additional information below.
We have been looking at the RBT scripts and have found a way to get it to populate by implementing the get_raw_commit_message() method the PerforceClient class in It seems to work for us but there are comments in the file that make it seem like it was deliberately not implemented for Perforce because the description is supposed to be updated server-side. So we wanted input on how it should really be fixed.
