Kyle and I talked about this one-on-one, but for anyone else interested,
I'll relay basically what I said.
As of now, we don't have any built-in way to do site configuration. It's
something I would like, but we'd have to figure out how to do it. Where does
post-review look for the site configuration file? Presumably you'd want it
on a network store, but post-review would have to have *some* config telling
it where to look.
So there are basically two main ways to tackle this today that I'm aware of:
1) Use a global wrapper for post-review. Instead of having users install
RBTools/post-review, provide a post-review in a standard, network-wide bin
path (assuming your network has one and that users have it in their PATH)
and use that to wrap post-review with whatever configuration options are
needed. This is used in some large deployments and works fairly well.
2) Supply/generate a .reviewboardrc file on installations that includes a
central .reviewboardrc. The .reviewboardrc file is basically just a Python
script, so it can import something else that's in the path.
The first option is probably the easiest and more hassle-free.
