Off-hand, I don't know why it'd be problematic, but I'd recommend setting up
a little development server on your box, set DEBUG = True in your
settings_local.py, and testing it there. We should be able to better see
what the error is that way, along with lots of debug information.
We try to return JSON payloads for everything, but a 500 error can happen
when something internally breaks. That'd definitely be a bug, since we want
to return gracefully with *something*.
Just a heads up. Review Board 1.5 RC 1 is out, and we're looking to release
hopefully soon (just working on docs and some last-minute bugs). There's a
new API in 1.5 that sits alongside the old API. The new one is better,
cleaner, more flexible, and will let you do more of what you need. I don't
know how you want to handle development of this plugin, but if you want to
support 1.5's API as well, you can query /api/info/, and if that's not a
404, it will be 1.5.
