The other option is to add a command line override for the SCM repository information.

I ended up doing this for the SCM we use ..... although I've not yet needed to make use of it :-) I think this is what the --p4-port flag is for with Perforce.

You could also have some sort of mapping in the .reviewboardrc file (again you would need to implement this logic). These would probably be good contributions back for post-review if you do work on this.

I have met this problem before. post-review's CVSClient now get the host name of CVS Server through "socket.getfqdn(host)", to replace host part of your "CVSPath" string. But ReviewBoard server seems not support it. So you can edit post-review yourself. You should find the CVSClient part and function "get_repository_info()", you move the last sentence of this function after "fp.close()" and ignore following source code, That may be fine. You can have a try.

Best Regards!
