Looks like we're not importing the "logging" module in scmtools/git.py. I'll
fix this and update the site after tonight's midnight (PST) build.
The reason you're getting the error, though, is that our git support
requires a full SHA1 instead of the default shortened SHA1 in order to look
up files from GitHub. I recommend either using post-review (which makes it
far easier to post/update review requests), or passing the --full-index
option to `git diff`.
