Thank you, Christian.
I tried cvs add but then I got the following result:
cvs diff: <file_name> is a new entry, no comparison available
I am trying review board for facilitating our code review practice. We
have a primitive mechanism around cvs and bugzilla for post-commit
reviews but we do not have anything for facilitating pre-commit
reviews. I would especially like to be able to create review request
with a code file without diff. It looks like it may be possible to
write a repository class for review board to allow that.
On the other hand, I have tried to post-review tool as well but I
could not get it work. I am getting the following error:
Error creating review request: The repository path specified is not in
the list of known repositories (code 206)
I put the following line into .reviewboardrc file:
REVIEWBOARD_URL = "http://18.104.22.168:8080/"
And, review-board repository settings are as follows:
Hosting Service: Custom
Repository Type: CVS
I have seen couple email threads discussing the same issue and your
responses to them; but somehow I still could not get this work.
