I apologize in advance for the stream of consciousness nature of this email.
 But hopefully, it helps.

You can set the reviewboard:url property by doing"svn propedit
reviewboard:url ."
inside the directory for the repository using cygwin.  When you run
post-review you'll want to be inside that directory.  Make sure that you
also have the repository set up in the review-board admin ui (

I am not a windows user, so I am unaware of any "gotchas" with Cygwin, but
from reading your emails I gather the following information.

The cleartool error that you're getting is not the problem.  It sounds like
you are using a svn server.  And post-review is unable to find the
reviewboard url and your current working directory (when you run
post-review) isn't inside the repository.
